|How to Evacuate Blood Collected Under Nails?
A subungual hematoma is a collection of blood (hematoma) underneath a toenail or fingernail (black toenail). It can be extremely painful for an injury of its size, although otherwise it is not a serious medical condition. It is sometimes known as runner's toe or tennis toe. These hematomas are treated by either releasing the pressure conservatively when tolerable or by drilling a hole through the nail into the hematoma.
