Toenails fall off due to two reasons, fungus and injury. Many fungus feed off keratin, which is the protein that makes up the toenail. With injury, subungual hematoma may be the cause of the nail falling off.


Answer by  Hapster (24)

The most common reason is toenail fungus. This can be caused by trauma to the nail, poor hygiene of the foot, low immunity or a pH imbalance.


Answer by  fly52 (13)

Fungi and injury are two main reasons why a toenail would come off. Fungi can grow under the toenail causing the toenail to fall off. An injury would cause bleeding forcing the toenail to fall off, unless the blood is drained. In both cases, the nail will regrow over time.
