As long as it doesn’t get infected, just put a bandage on it to hold the nail down, it will eventually fall off. Like in 3-4 months. That what happened to be when I dropped a cinder block on my foot.

Yeah, holding it down is not gonna help. My friend slammed the door, so technically the nail was "stabbed" in my toe, so pullin it down would hurt quite a lot.

Pull it off and move on. It will hurt like crazy, but then you won't have to worry about it being there to catch on anything.

Drink a couple of Steel Reserves, play some loud music, and have a few friends over.

Tie a string to it, then a doorknob, and slam the door (no wait a minute, that's for teeth).

Well if pulling it off worked, it was the right thing to do. Be sure to put anti-bacterial cream on with a band aid to hold in the cream.

Im going to go ahead and say ICK to this whole thing. Yes pull it off and then dissinfect it and then bandage it up. EW. Also consult a medical expert about how long it takes to grow back.

Both are good! Just one is a little more pain and one is more discomfort.
