Can blood clots in the nails kill you?

Not per se: Why are you having clots in the nail is more important than the clot per se. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Probably nothing: If the nail no longer hurts you should wait for the blood clot to grow out. This will take several months.
