I just recently started a new job where I'm on my feet all day. The first day, I wore a pair of shoes that I've had for a long time, but haven't worn in probably a year. By the end of the day, my big toes were in pain. I assumed it was the shoes and decided I wouldn't wear them anymore. A few days later, some of my toenail polish scaped off and I could see a dark bruise under the nail, so took off all the polish and found bruises on both big toes. I've never gotten a bruise like these from wearing shoes, especially comfortable broken in shoes. But it's been almost two weeks now and one bruise has gotten bigger and the other smaller one has just gotten much darker. The toe with the bigger bruise is also a little swollen (which I'm guessing is from the bruising) and the tip of the nail looks like it's starting to pull away from the skin a little (from the swelling?) I also remember that a week or two before the shoes, my 2 yr old had stepped on my big toe and it was super painful and I thought maybe I had an ingrown nail starting, but I didn't even think about it again until the shoes a few weeks later. I've done some research online and of course found info on Subungual melanoma, but don't want to get all worked up about it until I can talk to someone who's experienced something similar or is knowledgable about it. I don't want to be a hypochondriac and run to the dr without researching it first. Any help?

I have the same problem, although it happend about 3-4 months ago and I still havent seen any improvement. Mine was also a shoe injury but from out at a nightclub. My feet were so sore, I got home, took my shoes off and noticed a bruise under each toenail. I've had a look on some other sites but they just say if there is no pain (which there isnt) then it will heel on its own. But I think I have waited long enough, and still no progress.
If you hear anything that could but speed up the heeling process, or if you have foud anything out, please let me know it would be much appreciated.
Thanks
KT

MY BIG TOE IS BLACK DOWN ONE SIDE UNDER THE TOE NAIL-I HAVE HAD THIS SINCE TRIPPING ON A STEP ABOUT SIX WEEKS AGO. THE COLOUR AND SIZE HAVE REMAINED CONSTANT. I AM ALSO TYPE 2 DIABETIC AND I AM WORRIED THAT THIS IS CONNECTED.

ANY IDEAS?
