Hello,
I'm Shantal and I'm a moderator for this topic.
I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.
I was checking to see if you had already found your answer or if you still need assistance from one of the Professionals.
Please let me know if you wish to continue waiting or if you would like for us to close your question?
Thank you,
Shantal

Hi and sorry for the delay as your question just became available to meWhile this could be a subungual hematoma and nothing too serious it cold actually be a melanoma under the nail so you need to have a dermatologist look at itIf you could show me a photo on this page I can discuss this further with you
