: I hope someone can help. For about six weeks my big toe has been bruised under the nail. There is a little bleeding from the end of the toenail when it gets stepped on.(basketball) Can I save the nail? How do I care for it properly? No health insurance. So a good home remedy would be appreciated. Thank you.
I'd recommend seeing a good dermatologist at once since a black or brown discoloration under the nail bed can also be a sign of a form of skin cancer called acral lentiginous melanoma which should be treated immediately. Don't mean to scare you, but you should definitely check it out. Good luck!
