Subungual hematoma

Hi !
I slammed my right thumb on the car door two weeks ago and I have a small fracture on the distal bone and subungual hematoma. I took meds for pain, inflammation and antibiotics, now I only take Vit D, Zinc and Calcium.I had bandage for one week, but now I have orthosis because my nail might fall off. I have dark blue-purple-black hematoma under and around the nail and it's really solid on touch. The nail started to change the color from dark blue to purple and it's still growing. I'm not really sure now what to do with the hematoma, should I put something or keep it dry ? Should I clean the finger with Iodine or Hydrogen ? What's the time needed to heal ?
Thank You !
