How can I treat skier's toe?

    You can treat skier's toe quickly if you head to a clinic within hours or a day of noticing the black nail. If you wait several days trying to tough it out, doctors have less success treating the nail. The doctor typically burns a tiny hole in the nail, which allows the drop or two of blood to come out.
