Will My Black Nail Grow Back Normally Slammed Car Door On It
Blood under nail: If you hit your skin very hard, it will damage small blood vessels in your skin, and you will get a bruise, where blood has leaked from the veins into the skin. If you hit your finger nail very hard, you will get bleeding under the nail, which may lift your nail up. There is no where for this blood to go, and the black, old blood, will remain until the nail grows out and it may take months. ...Read more

Dropped glass bottle on big toe went black now half nail off n sore to touch is this ok? Do I need to cover it? Will it grow back?
Subungal hematoma: The bruise that you have is called subungal hematoma. If it is recent and the toe is swollen, you will need to decompress the pressure built up by hematoma. This is done by by piercing a sterile needle in the nail plate to relieve this pressure. If uncertain, then see professionals for care. If the nail plate is still intact, it will push out the subungal hematoma and you just clip it or trim it. ...Read more
Most a blood bruise: By traumatizing the sensative nailbed, you have likely caused a bruise/blood collection under the nail. In the 1st 24-48hrs drs often release the pressure by creating a small hole in the nail with a hot needle allowing the blood pool to escape, limiting what will be a long term blood stain on the underside of the nail. The nail grows out slowly ~1-2 mm/mo & a new nail should emerge from the nailbed. ...Read more
I slammed my thumb in a car door three weeks ago. The nail has turned black shortly after, but now there is a foul odor. Should I be concerned?
Yes: The nail bed is covered in old blood that alone would not be a concern but with foul odor implies tissue destruction and infection. Needs to be properly evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more
I smashed my finger in my car door. It's swollen, nail black & has a strange odor. What's causing the odor?
Bad odor: Could mean infection. Please get this evaluated ASAP. Take care. ...Read more
The black is blood which has pooled under the nail. It may take several months for it to grow out. If an odor develops, it may indicate a bacterial infection and you may need the nail avulsed along with oral antibiotics.
If you press on the nail and fluid is still coming out, I would see about having it removed. It may or may not grow normally ongoing. ...Read more

I have trapped my finger in a car door, it the nail. And the skin around it has turned black and blue. It is very painful and the mobility is not 100%?
There may be: Just a soft tissue injury but there may also be a nondsplaced fracture or even a displaced fracture that a tendon or ligament attaaches to. While just pain and swelling alon can redurce motion, oif it is not getting better an evaluation and an xray may be needed. Even if fractured many fingettip injuries with intact skin as long as they ate not associated with a tendon injury don need much. ...Read more

I pinched my finger tip in between a car door there was blood, the nail is black, my finger tip is swollen, the pain is really bad. What happens now?
23 year old lady who slammed finger in car door.
You should visit the ER to make sure your finger is neurovascularly intact meaning there is blood flow to the finger and the nerves are functioning. You may require some x rays of your hand to make sure you did not fracture one of your phalanges. You also may need a tetanus shot. The subungual hematoma should be drained as well. Good luck. Apply ice. ...Read more

See surgeon: You have a lump under the nail that is from blood under the nail. If it is still liquid a surgeon can poke a hole in the nail to let it out. Otherwise he/she may need to remove all or part of the nail to clean it out ...Read more
Before I jammed my finger from a car door and I'm not sure my nail will come back to normal, because I still see a little blood under the nail.
Don't worry. It will:
When you jamm your nail or get it injured, the nail will slowly become loose and eventually come out.
But worry not, the new one is already in the making and slowly it will replace the otherwise dead nail. The blood that you are seeing inside the nail may need to come out, if it is causing pain. Otherwise the nail will be replaced by a new one in due course of time. ...Read more
Closed my thumb in car door a7bout 2 weeks ago. Now it is black and red underneath nail bed. Does the fingernail need to be removed and what doctor?
Subungual hematoma: When a nail is crushed or injured, sometimes a hematoma (blood collection) forms beneath the nail. This can cause pressure on the nail sterile or germinal matrix (the region where nail growth and adhesion occurs). When doctors see a subungual hematoma (blood beneath the nail), it should be drained through a small hole in the nail. However, at two weeks, it is too late, and may simply be bruised ...Read more
Depends...: ...On the procedure. If just the border was taken out and no acid was used to burn the nail root, the nail will most often (about 95% of the time) grow back 1mm/month. If a chemical was used to permanently remove the nail, it should not grow back (very occasionally it does, but this is rare). ...Read more
Yes: It may take up to a year if its the big toe nail. ...Read more
Sure: Covering the nailbed with a band-aid will not affect eventual regrowth one way or another. The only way it won't regrow is if you damaged the deep cuticle, and a traumatic avulsion rarely does that. So keep the wounded nailbed clean and if you want to, you can use a covering such as a band-aid without fear of further harm. By the way, ouch! ...Read more
Yes: A toenail that is traumatized will grow back, perhaps at a slower rate. However, the appearance of the nail may be altered if the matrix (the area that determines the growth of nail) has been affected. ...Read more
No need: To do anything, in time it will regrow. Might cover with bandaid for a short while. ...Read more
May not be: Able too. If they are growing and split you can help them grow together with kevlar. ...Read more
