losing big toenail...

so, lately i've been having problems with my big toe on my right foot...about a month ago, my toe began to hurt...i didn't pay much mind to it...so i let it go...then a few weeks past and i decided to take a closer look @ my toe...i squeezed down on my nail, and puss came out...yuck! i went to the doctor's and they couldn't tell me anything...so about 2 more weeks have gone by and today, as i removing some nail polish, i noticed that my toenail is begining to pull away from my toe... i wanted to know if my poor little toenail will grow back!! it's starting to get warm...time for sandals...nice time for my toenail to fall off!!

thanks in advance,
