Medically, the separation of a nail from the nail bed is known as onycholysis. A number of different diseases and conditions can result in a detached nail, including certain infections of the nails and chronic conditions of the skin like psoriasis or eczema. Trauma or injury to the fingers or toes can also cause a torn or detached nail.

With that said if the there are no lacerations in the nail bed and the rest of the nail is attached firmly, no treatment would be necessary except for maybe a bandaid with topical antibiotic cream for a few days. If the nail is loose it may need to be taken off by a doctor or it may fall off on its own soon.

A detached toenail can result from an injury or infection. Fungal infections or injuries may require additional medical attention to help ensure the toenail grows back properly.

The painless condition in which a nail separates from the nail bed is referred to as Onycholysis. This can occur due to a number of factors such as injury for someone with long fingernails, or as

Detached Fingernail or Toenail. A detached nail is when the nail becomes separated from the area underneath it (the nail bed). This often means losing all or part of the nail. An injury to your finger or toe is often the cause. It can also be caused by an infection or other skin diseases around or under the nail.

Onycholysis is the separation of a fingernail or toenail from its pink nail bed. The separation occurs gradually and is painless. The most common cause of onycholysis is trauma. Even slight trauma can cause onycholysis when it happens repetitively — for example, the daily tapping of long fingernails on a keyboard or counter.
