Doctor: Hi.Thanks for your query and a clear picture.There are a few options:- If the trauma is very recent the subungal hematoma may be drained by a small burr hole.- If the injury old, you really need to just observe and wait. This will resolve on its own as there is no swelling, no pain, no signs of infection.I hope this answers your query and clears your doubts.
