I slammed my finger in the door and now I have a blood clot. How to get rid of blood clot in your middle finger.

Heated needle: If I am understanding you correctly, you have a blood clot underneath your fingernail (which can be extremely painful). Draining the blood can provide relief and the easiest way to do this at home is to heat a needle to sterilize it and gently make a hole in your fingernail to allow the blood to drain (a very hot needle also makes it easier to puncture the nail). Otherwise, see a doc for help. ...Read more

Hi doctor, I jammed my little finger about a month back, I am still having the blood clot in the nail. What should I do? Just leave it to grow?

Yes: What you describe is a black fingernail or subungal hematoma. This can be extremely painful when it happens and there can be pressure under the nail from continued bleeding. Most of the time the pain and throbbing improves with rest & ice. The discoloration improves with time as the blood stained nail grows out. If there is no pain leave it alone. The clot will clear with growth of the nail. ...Read more
