Big toes bleed under the nail while running

Help. I have just taken up running and can run about 3-4 miles
comfortable. When I say this I mean my body feels good, my muscles feel
good, and I have no pain. However, when I get home I find my socks
drenched in blood and my two big toes are sensitive and have a tingleing
sensation. They are also swollen under the nail. These symptoms last for
days and lead me to belive that the blood is coming from underneath the
nails when I run. I have been running on an asphalt trail. Has anyone
ever heard or experienced this problem? Does anyone have any advice on
how to prevent or treat this problem? Any help is welcomed. Thanks
