finger got stuck in a door

Chat Forum Talk about topics not related to MapleStory

I went over to friend's house today, to prepare a lemonade and cookie stand. Well, on the
way out of the house with all out materials and stuff, my poor pinky got squished by the
closing door. Thankfully my finger only got hit against the door and didn't get stuck between the
door and its frame. But then the upper nail of my pinky is a dark purple and if you look
closely you can see a hint of red, too.

So I have a question. Should I put ice on it or will it not help at all? There's still a
pang of pain every few seconds, and whenever my hands get too cold, my pinky
throbs even more (the nail), so I'm afraid if I put ice on it, it'll be even more painful.
My nails isn't broken, just underneath it I think is blood and a dark bruise. So
what can I do to stop the pain and can anyone tell me if I will grow a new nail
even though it isn't broken? Thanks.

  • By the way, this was about 3 hours ago, if that helps tell you anything.

EDIT: Thanks for the advice, everyone. I really hope it won't take 3-4 months to
look normal, and I hope it won't take more than 2 weeks to recover, since I need
to write and all at school.

A similar situation happened to me a month ago. My nail is still blackish to this day. I didn't put any ice on it or anything. Anyways, the pain will go away in 2-3 days, but your nail won't return to normal until the bloodied nail grows out. It'll probably look normal within 3-4 months.

I never put ice on my finger when it was slammed once, I just let it clear on its own. The nail will be fine, my nail didn't grow in differently after.

This happened to me.
DON'T put ice on it! It'll be way too painful. Way way too painful.
There is literally nothing you can do.

The pain will go away in a few days though. If your nail isnt broken, you won't grow a new nail, so nothing to worry about
