Mashed my (Thumb) nail in a dresser drawer back in

Mashed my (Thumb) nail in a dresser drawer back in Feb. It turned white, yellow, green, black.
Nail finally grew out to the end taking 8 months and I cut the nail short. Now I have a swollen finger & much pain again after a week from cutting the nail. What is wrong? I've used Hydrogen Peroxide but the pain is much. What do I need to do. Carolyn Powell Rosman, NC 28772

My husband has raised red bumps, mostly on his back. A dr. took a biopsy, said it came back as a bug bite . They continue to crop up. Checked for bed bugs, fleas, etc. by did not find any. Besides no one else has these bumps. Some are the size of a pencil eraser, while others are the sign of a thumb finger nail. This has been ongoing for five months and his Internal medicine doctor and the dermatologist cannot seem to give him an answer or relief. Topical creme, Clobetasol Propionate only gives relief for about 5 hrs. We have thought it could possibly be some sort of skin parasite from eating sushi. Any suggestions?

I ve had a lump on the back of my right hand at the wrist for several weeks and it is very, very painful. Now a not has appeared at the base of my thumb on the inside of my hand. I am in severe pain. When I attempt to write, hold anything or try to open any thing with that hand it hurts even worst. The doctor told me several weeks ago that it was Arthritis.. my problem is that I have arthritis in other parts of my body, but this is different... it hurts constantly..

I have a 2 1/2 year old girl who has always sucked her thumb. In the last couple of weeks her thumb nail has slowley started coming away and now seems to be hanging on by a small bit of skin/nail. I am concerned about hygine, and whether, if the nail does fall off, will it grow back as normal
