Good morning, thanks for the question
Accumulation of blood that freezes under the surface of the nail is called a subungual hematoma. This condition occurs generally after an injury to the nail. Complaints that are felt like pain due to pressure due to accumulation of blood that gives a bluish color to black.
If the amount of bleeding is small, it generally does not require special treatment. To reduce swelling, it is recommended to lift the leg for about 20 minutes, compress it with a cold cloth, or by taking anti-inflammatory medication.
If the pain complaints get worse, the doctor can do a small operation to flow through the accumulation of blood under the nail bed. If the accumulation of blood is large enough to make the nails lifted and separated from the nail bed, nail retraction is recommended so that healthy cookies can grow back.
Make further consultations with your doctor to get adequate treatment.
That's all, hope it helps
