My daughter smashed her finger a few weeks ago and now her nail is about to fall off. It's just hanging on by the cuticle. SHe keeps wiggling it! Gross!
Ignore me dry hands and picked hangnails.

It doesn't seem to bother her now when she smashed it it was horrible, her whole nail turned blue as soon as she smashed it. The her finger swelled and my husband had to drill a hole in the nail to relieve the pressure.

Yep it lets the trapped blood out and relieved the pressure under the nail which helps with the pain. You do it very slowly and very carefully and stop as soon as you get through the nail.
