    Red face Slammed finger, hole in nail, puss...yuck...

    Okay...about 6 months ago, my finger was slammed in a car door. The nail didn't fall off or anything. Since then, though, the whole nail/fingertip had been very sensitive and painful if pressed on.

    Around October, I started noticing a hard lump on my finger, towards the corner of my nailbed. Just this week, I noticed that, at that corner, my nail seems to be growing in with a hole at the nailbed.

    While inspecting it, I squeezed my finger in that area and a decent amount of hard 'puss' (looked like a giant whitehead, ugh) came out of the hole.

    The pain was instantly gone as is the bump. I put hydrogen peroxide on after removing the white stuff.

    Does anyone have any clue what this was? Should I be worried?

    Perhaps it was a wart on your fingernail?

    I suggest keeping an eye on it for any unhealthy changes. If you observe anything like a regrowth of the bump, an enlarging of the hole in your nailbed, or if the pain returns, I recommend seeing your doctor for treatment.
