    bruised fingernail

    I am an adult(20) who has been a nail biter for as long as I can remember. I have a bruised nail, probably hemorrhage under the nail for several years. I assumed that it was permanent. I heard about using a paper clip to stab the nail and relieve the blood. Would that help considering that the nail has been like that forever? It doesn't really hurt. Is there another way? Thanks

    That could cause an infection.
    I would go see a dr first. If there is perm nail bed damage that long I would see why you have it first.

    sounds like to me that a blood vessel has popped under the nail & I would not recomend using a paper clip due to a infection which can happen. I would see the doctor & get some good advice.
