Will you please clarify your question?
My daughter smashed her finger in a door. I've been trying to put a hole in the fingernail to relieve the pressure. I've been using small drill bits but don't seem to be getting through. Is there a better way of doing it?
So there is blood collection under the nail(subungual hematoma).
Very i want to advice you that you should not try this at home.
This should be done in a doctor's office,under the strict aseptic conditions.
it's turning darker but not purple.
Because you may infect a hematoma,
which may lead to formation of pus.
If pain is very severe then your doctor may do it with a large bore sterile needle.
Got it. thanks...
