Black Nail


Recommended Posts

Dropped a heavy stone on my left foot a week ago last Sunday and I am still having a lot of pain in big toe.  Nail was starting to go black after about 3 days.  Read on tinternet about heating needles, paper clips etc.  Also read about drilling with small drill.  Since I couldn't get the better half to do needle or paper clip decided to drill it.  Smallest drill I had was about 0.5mm, so started by twisting this with my fingers.  Seemed to go so far and then stopped.  Changed to 1 mm drill and nice and gently managed to get through with no pain and blood oozing out.  That's stopped the throbbing but still got some pain.  Don't think its broke so I guess its a case of giving it a bit more time to heel.
