Black Streaks Under Toenail
Both big toenails discoloured, blue looking; right one particularly looks as though black streak in it. Slight pain but nothing major. What to do?
Microtrauma: It sounds like your toenails are hitting the end of your shoe. This usually happens if the toe box is either too small (toe is pressed up against the end) or too large (foot is sliding around and the toe is hitting the end). This is very common in runners--it can lead to either thickening of the nail, or it may eventually turn black and fall off--a new nail will grow in within a year. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Bruise: Sounds like you have a subungual hematoma, also knows as a bruise under your nail. This occurred due to trauma. The nail usually takes between 12-18 months to grow out fully so eventually that spot will grow out and you will be able to cut off the nail. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
I'm 37, black and a weightlifter. I hurt my big toenail last year. It fell off. Now, i saw 2 or 3 faint streaks in the part growing back. Is there any cause for concern?
Hi, so I went on hikes with backpacks that weigh about 60 pounds or heavier. My toenails are now black. Or there is just dried blood under them.
Not necessarily.: No doubt there has been trauma to the toe and the bruise is trapped under the nail. Depending on how extensive the bruise is and the pressure it may have caused will make a difference as to whether you'll loose the nail or if it will quiet down after proper first aid. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
