How long does it take for toenail blackness to go away?

Have this dark blue/black uneven spot in the corner of the toenail. Not sure where it came from,just know that it hurts. Dont know if it is serious or not but when will it go away?

    If you can’t recall any specific trauma then you should go and see your doctor. Melanomas can present with pigmentation under the nail. Unlikely to be but it does happen.

    Pour hydrogen peroxide on it every day and let

    It soak for 15 minutes or so. It also cleans up toe nail fungus or rotten nails.

    Probably from hurting or stubbing your toe once. As the toenail keeps growing, the spot will go away. But sometimes these things take 9 months to a year.

    You probably banged it really good. Sadly, you'll have to wait for it to grow out.

    You had some kind of accident and it tore part of the nail away from the nailbed. There was a little bleeding, and the blood that was stuck in there turned black.

    It's not serious. The soreness will go away but the black spot won't. It will have to grow out. I smacked my big toe into a stair step a few years ago and the whole nail turned black. A week later it got loose and fell off and a nice, clean new nail grew in its place.
