strange red splotches underneath nailbed
hello-

a few months ago, around april or march, i developed a large dark red/wine colored splotch underneath my nail of my right big toe. another smaller red blotch has formed below that one. and another one has appeared under the edge of the nail the toe next to the big toe. what could this be? is it a sign of a more serious condition? they're not painful

this could be dried blood (subungal hematoma).  this can occur if you run, play tennis, or wear tight shoes.

if this is not the case, have a podiatrist take a look at it to make sure you are not developing a neoplasm/growth
