Hi there. The blood clot you describe could very well be what we in medical terminology call a pyogenic granuloma
. The treatment you mention is fine but is it working is the question. Personally i prefer an antibiotic like metronidazole
given the nail's unique position on the foot & the chance of gram negative organisms growing. You may choose to add this to the regime in addition to ibuprofen
in a dose suited to your body weight. The lesion if pyogenic granuloma will need to be addressed separately & cauterised & all this will require the services of a dermatologist
nearest you. Good luck & Godspeed!
