What should I do about my toe nail?

My toe is hurting really bad. The whole top peeled off because it chipped and now it is really short. I'm wondering if I should go to the doctor right away or wait until I come back from my California trip in which I'm leaving to this Saturday.

Wait until you come back from California. How long was your toenail that it chipped off by itself? Are you sure that it wasn't already infected? If the rest are long you should buy a nail clipped and take care of the rest. Also if your toenails are yellow they are already in bad shape. So maybe you shouldn't go to California now, because if they are yellow your in danger of another one breaking off.

Is your toenail completely off of is it just short. Does it look infected .
Does it feel like an ingrown toenail.
Is the pain manageable

Go to podiatrist right away! You don't want it hurting during your trip.

It will probably grow back. Go to a doctor if you want, but you may not need to.
