Ran my first marathon over the weekend and have now got a typical "runners foot". I had a black toenail when I started running a few years ago but since then have no toenail issues.
Towards the end of the race I did feel like I might have lost one and was nervous taking the sock off but it's still there. It felt more loose on Sunday than it did today. It isn't sore unless I touch it so I'm trying to wiggle it. The whole toenail and area around it seems slightly raised, which I think means it will come out. What I'm slightly concerned about is there is a red area around the nail bed, almost like a cut, particularly at the base. I'm putting antiseptic on it, and keeping a plaster on it, but is there any chance it could become infected? Should I go to the GP about it? Or will it sort itself out?
