Triathlon Toenail Bruising

These toes are a result of a triathlon event. The toes show some bruising and one shows swelling and nail bed inflammation. The pressure from the liquid building up under the nail and unable to escape can cause severe pain to the toe, specially if there is any extra pressure added such as pressure from footwear or bed sheets.

The toenail needs removed and pressure release and another new healthy nail will grow.

    I don’t have a toenail problem but I think I bruised my heel running. Can you deal with this also? Hamza
