Toe Nail Infection and Trauma

About a month ago, I somehow hurt my toe playing softball> Underneath the nail and the whole big toe became very painful and it started leaking a yellowish red fluid. My doctor prescribed an antibiotic and the pain went away. However, after the liquid under the toe drained, I had a gap between the nail and the toe. I thought it would fall off but it never did and it felt completely normal again. Then three days ago, the nail was snagged. It started bleeding and the nail is now yellow, black and red, plus it's very painful. What is going on with this nail????

The HealWell Night splint is designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
