Blackended Toenail

Blackened ToenailA blackened toenail is caused by pooling of blood, or a hematoma, beneath the toenail (like a bruise under the skin). There is a capillary bed just beneath the nail which is easily damaged.  Hematomas are a very common result of an active lifestyle, especially among people who jog or play tennis. Other contributing factors are hyperextension of the big toe and ill-fitting shoes and blood thinners.
