How do You Cure a Hematoma?

The best treatment can depend on the location of the hematoma. Hematomas under the nail will need to be drained by a hold in the nail. Hematomas under the skin can be treated with ice, several times a day, and elevation, as often as possible. After 48 hours you can switch ice packs and then warm packs and take turns placing it on the hematoma but continue the elevation.
