Cut On My Foot Quickly Turned Black What Should I Do
My podiatrist popped a large blood blister on my foot 3.5 wk ago. The area is still numb from the procedure and the part she cut to drain is black!

Hematoma: The black discoloration is bleeding. Initially after such an injury this pool of blood or hematoma can be drained. If it is already dry it may dissolve over several months. If the injury is severe the nail may fall off and you will get a new nail in 4-6 months. In severe cases a doctor may have to remove the nail in order to repair a laceration underneath. X-rays may be needed to rule out fracture. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
