How To Get Rid Of Clotted Blood On The Big Toe That Got Hit By A Falling Helmet?
So my toe was hit by a falling helmet, then two days later a small clot appeared, it didn’t hurt and why did my toe grow irregularly?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hard impact between your thumb and helmet as you experience can indeed make bleeding on the fingers and nails. This bleeding will clinically usually appear as reddish spots, which then develop into bluish and then black. This bleeding often appears accompanied by pain, but the intensity of this pain can vary, some are mild, some are severe to interfere with the function of the finger movement itself.
Bleeding around the fingers and nails can obviously affect the growth of the nails. This can happen, especially if there is damage around the pads and nail matrix. This is a possibility that makes your nails grow irregularly. Not only the history of injuries around the fingers and nails that you experienced before, irregular nail growth can also occur due to the influence of nutritional deficiencies, nail biting habits, psoriasis, fungal infections of the nails, and so on.
Need to be clarified again, what is the condition of the nails that grow irregularly? Are there other complaints that have arisen?
If no other complaints arise besides irregular nail growth, chances are your complaint is not dangerous. You can try these tips first so that your complaints improve:
Warm water compresses on the nail area where there is blood clotted
Always keep your fingers and nails clean, i.e. by regularly bathing, washing feet and hands, always use clean, dry, and not too narrow footwear
Be more careful in your activities so that injuries no longer occur around the fingers and nails
Live a healthy lifestyle and diet
However, if you feel you have not experienced significant changes after undergoing the tips above, do not hesitate to check your complaint directly to the doctor or dermatologist to get the best treatment, ok?
I hope this helps.
