what is the cause of the infection.? is it hammered or a heavy thing was dropped over your finger.? the purple color is due to blood, it is called hematoma. if your nail is becoming discolored like going to be black, your nail may die and should be remove surgically. don't worry, nails are able to regenerate so consult a doctor. The feeling that it's like going into your arm is because of pain so or the meantime, if you have pain reliever or inflammatory drug like mefenamic acid, i urge you to take one. For antibiotic, seek a doctor's advice.Health Question & Answer

If you are in school, tell the school nurse or your counselor. If it is infected, Your finger needs medical attention NOW! Perhaps your teacher or counselor or the nurse can get your mom to take you to the doctor. If it is going up your arm this could be very dangerous. Do you also live with your dad.? Tell HIM! You must get to the doctor now! If none of those work, call your local child protective services agency or social services. They will look at your finger and make sure you get medical attention.Health Question & Answer
