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.

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.
