Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thank you for reaching out at Ask A Doctor
Swelling, pain and warmth around the nail post trauma could indicate Acute paronychia .I would recommend you to get a doctor 's opinion in direct for a detailed examination to rule out pus accumulation which might require incision and drainage along with oral antibiotics and analgesic.
