Blackened nails can be caused by several things such as:
Trauma or collision causing haemorrhage or bleeding under the nail Nail fungus infection Other medical conditions such as lack of oxygen, malnutrition, kidney problems, anemia, heart problems, bacterial infections, etc. If it occurs on one nail it is often due to the hematoma under the nail where it can be occurs due to trauma such as a collision, for example the result of a child hitting something while playing.
If it does not interfere and does not cause pain, it can be overcome by compressing the blackened nail with ice, if it causes pain and the nail is lifted, it is necessary to do a doctor's examination where actions will be carried out such as making a hole in the nail so that the pressure from the bleeding can be reduced so that it does not press on the nail or the nail is removed if the nail is no longer intact. give the child medicine such as paracetamol if you feel pain.
