Exclamation Black area on Toe Nail and surrounding skin (I need help please)

Hello and thank you for clicking on my thread.

I've had this black spot since this morning:

I tried to search 'Black toe' but I always get links about black toenails, but not the skin around it too. The blackness does go into the nail though, but the surrounding area of skin is much more larger.

The blackskin almost looks like it has been just marked by black permanent marker. There is no pain, I feel as if there is less feeling on this toe as opposed to the same toe on the other foot with no black spot, but that may be because I am paranoid right now.

Any help appreciated!

Did you stub your toe, or injure it in any way you can recall? Sometimes with minor injuries to toes or fingers, it can causes a small internal bleed that causes it to look black for several months. If you did nothing to injure your toe, it may be worth getting a doc to take a peek at it. Good Luck! HTH!
