Alright, so a few weeks ago I slammed my thumb in the car door. Blood started to collect under my nail and of course I felt some pressure and it hurt a bit but I pulled through and everything was alright. But now it's at the time that my finger nail is supposed to fall off and all the blood from under my nail is gone (I'm guessing it leaked from a small cut near my cuticle) and I know it will fall off. The thing is, all this time I didn't go to a doctor (and I don't think I will get an appointment anytime soon) and have noticed a smell (it's not bad, but not very pleasant either). What should I do? It doesn't look infected.
Yada; They normally dry and fall with little to no odor, Glad there is someone else out there. I think you really have to give the doctor a call in the morning many times they leave a few open spots it's the odor that bothers me you could even have an abscess under there And it is much better than taking a chance we only get one set of fingers If you can't get in just a suggestion start soaking the finger but the doctors office can tell you what to soak it with. I am sorry I can't help you more but it should get better once it finishes draining or at least dry up and the nail falls off. best of luck
