This is Dr. David
sorry you had nail trauma
what happened to your toe?
trauma to your toe and foot can cause bleeding under the toe nail which can turn the nail back.
this bruising can take weeks to months to get better.
yes, a shoe tennis shoe can cause rubbing and bruising
some people drag their toe to slow down in tennis and this can cause bruising of the toe
you should try a cold pack or ice pack on the area to help decrease pain and swelling
but the bruise below the toe nail can take weeks to months to get better.
try elevating the toe and foot as well
that can help
