Toenail removed healing advice

I had a toenail removed and while the nail was on my foot a new one was growing. If I had fungus on the big toe and not sure on the toe next to it, should I worry about the nail that was growing while the other was on top. Right now it looks like a small nail in middle of toe near edge. Thank you.

    Hello and thank you for your question. Fungus can easily spread from one nail to the next especially on the same foot. I would treat all prophylactically for fungus with either a nail laquer (prescription) or tea tree oil. If you do have fungus in the nails then you may need to do treatment for up to 6 months or a year depending on how severe the infection is. I hope this helps!
