the blood collection under the nail is called a subungual hematoma. the treatment of choice is trephination, or the creation of a decompressive hole in the nail plate. hot (sterile) device preferred over dirty drill bit but both accomplish same thing

Yeah, I've done the drill bit in my thumb during a bowling tournament after smashing my thumb between two bowling balls. Amazingly enough, I bowled pretty well the rest of the tournament. The pain does abate pretty drastically after you relieve the pressure.

The burning of the nail doesn't actually hurt at all. Its just gross and scary, I have a phobia of any "device" penetrating my skin. It is mostly healed by now, with very minimal pain.

Nurse trepaned my big toe with a hot paper clip. The jet of blood shot about 4 feet. But felt soooo good after. Lost the nail in the end. Gross.
