Nail Hematoma : Subungual Hematoma or blood pocket under a nail may start out very painful. Pain usually improves as the blood dries. If pain continues, the blood pocket may need to be drained. Ingrowing nail can get painful. Fungus may be be treated with oral medication after blood testing . See your PCP got one stop treatment of all these problems.
