Have broken toe nail. What to do for the dried blood under the nail?

I kicked a can with heavy wax in it in my sleep. My big toe was affected but never bled . Only under the toenail it did. It hurt at one time and I wrapped it up with Neosporin. Now, my toenail is split across half way and is able to lift up a little but is still attached with skin. I'm wondering what I can do for the dried blood under the nail. This happened about 9 months ago.

welcome to healthcare magic forum
thank you for your query
you have bruise formation under nail .
toe nail take much longer time to grow .
it may take up to 11-12 months also .
you need not to do any thing as it will go its own only .
please do not lift the nail or scratch as it will delay the healing.
if dryness is there you can apply moisturizer cream over nail .
wearing cotton socks will help you.
i hope i answered your question
