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.
