Ok so my toe is black!

I'm very accident prone, but I injured myself in a new way. I was walking through a door and I caught the corner of it with my little pinkie toe!!! Under the nail has turned three lovely shades of black, blue and purple and has been like this for about a month now. Does the color go away?? It's soo ugly and hubby teases me and calls me rotten toe....

(ironically he dropped something on HIS toe and it's black now too. LOL)

  • more than likely, your toenail will probably come off. don't worry it will grow back.

  • My dad had something like that with his fingernail. It takes months for it to go away. Be lucky the pinky toe isnt broke, because that hurts like hell.. just been through it. lol

  • Nails which are blue or black have most likely been injured. The discoloration is often due to a small collection of blood trapped under the surface of the nail. If the entire nail has been injured, it may detach from the nail bed and fall off. Injured nails can be soaked in warm water to relieve pain. Once the nail has dropped from the finger, apply a small amount of antibacterial cream to the nail bed and cover with a bandage or cotton guaze until new growth appears. Injuries can also cause spots or streaks, which will heal themselves with time.
