Toe nail is half black.

While playing football I got my toe nail injured. It was half blue for some time and when I played again, there was a little bleeding under the nail. Half of the nail has left the skin. I think the nail should be removed.

Hello there....I can understand your concern. From your description it looks like you could have developed haematoma under the nail. This could have led to its discolouration. This discolouration will take sometime to resolve spontaneously.... around few months. If you want to get the nail removed consult a general surgeon.
