In brief: Subungual hematoma

When you walk or run wearing tight shoes, your toenail would be hit repeatedly to the edge of the shoe.
The blood vessels under the toenail break and cause bleeding under the toenail. This is also known as subungual hematoma. Due to accumulated blood, the nail can turn black and fall off automatically with a new toenail growth. Avoid forced removal. See a doc for pain, redness, swelling or pus.
