Possible infection: You may be developing a paronychia or infection along the cuticle of the nail. Sometimes they appear black or bruised looking. Soak the toe in warm water with epsom salts and see how it goes - it may drain a little pus. If it continues or worsens over the next 24 hours then see a doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Whenever I press the flesh at my big toe, there will be pain as it feels like the nails poking on my toe. Is it a symptom for in grown toenail?
Possibly: Is the pain along side of the toenail? Is it red, swollen, warm? If that is the case then there is an infection associated with an ingrown nail. Otherwise it may be just an ingrown toenail from a curved or wide nail plate. I recommend you see a local podiatrist who sees this on a daily basis. ...Read more
My toenail is not thick but the skin on left big toe next to the nail on the right side is kind of hard and hurts very little?
Ingrown nail: Possibly. If there is tenderness on the side of the nail, and the skin on that side is thickening, the most likely cause is an ingrown toenail. I would see your Dr or a podiatrist to be sure, because they can become very painful if infected! Good luck! (Sometimes soaking the foot in warm Epson saltwater helps!) ...Read more

The corner of my bed just fell on my toe am there was blood on my sock so I'm assuming it's from under my toe nail. Will it fall of?! What do Ido
Maybe: The nail may fall off but I recommend you have it looked at by a doctor locally. The reason is that if it is bleeding underneath, you want to make sure it stops, doesn't get infected, and pressure doesn't build up which could cut off circulation in the area. If pressure is starting to build up, your doctor can easily remove all or part of the nail and bandage it properly so the nail grows back. ...Read more

A thorough history and physical exam and possibly some laboratory and radiology exams are needed to determine the exact cause. ...Read more

Separation anxiety.: Discoloring of the nail can be caused by several things. Your history narrows the possibilities. An examination would simplify getting to the real problem. Having said that, more than likely the color change is either due to air getting under the nail or the effects of a fungal infection starting in the corner area of the nail. Both can occur when the plate is separated from the underlying bed. ...Read more
