Melanoma Under Toenail Symptoms
I have a mole with 2 out of 5 of the abcde symptoms (melanoma) its border and color. Lesion benign?

This is one of the hardest calls in pathology, and some say it's impossible. The burning question will be whether to do additional surgery. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Bandaid and topical: The best treatment would be to get the wound assessed by a doctor. With that said if the there are no lacerations in the nail bed and the rest of the nail is attached firmly, no treatment would be necessary except for maybe a bandaid with topical antibiotic cream for a few days.

They can be confused with a traumatic episode to the nail bed where a small hematoma forms. Where the glomus does not usually enlarge, a hematoma does and when of concern can be partially drained by opening a paper clip, heating one end and penetrating the nail ...Read more
