When a dream shows you a nail falling off it means that there will be a change, no matter what you do, you need to prepare for it. It’s something that hurts, but you can’t control it because something has already happened and you have to deal with the pain until a new nail grows back.

An ingrown nail is something that causes a lot of discomfort. This dream means that you are going through a difficult phase, but you don’t try to change anything because you believe that things will soon improve on their own. However, the dream says that things will turn out differently than you want and that the discomfort will continue if you don’t do something about it.

Dreambook suggests you seek help or do what you can to improve the situation.

Insisting on keeping things the way they are will not be good. If you allow yourself to change, you will notice good things happening around you.

Rotten nail

When a dream shows a rotten toenail, it means that something needs to be fixed or improved.

A rotten nail is not always damaged, it can be cured with the right remedies. However, you should be very careful that its condition does not worsen.
