Amoxicillin For The Treatment Of Foot Infections.?
Night. I want to ask if the infection of the thumb can be cured by consuming only drugs and ointments? Like amoxilin and pain medication.
Hello Nina, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
There are several types of diseases of the toe, namely:
Cutaneous is a condition characterized by swelling, redness, and pain in the corners of the fingertips due to the growth of the side of the nail that protrudes inward so that it injures the skin. Symptoms can include pain when the nail is pressed, a buildup of fluid in the toe, bleeding in the nails, pus discharge, inflammation of the skin at the tip of the toe, and toe skin overgrowth.
Paronychia is a skin infection around the nails or toenails, which is generally caused by bacteria, but can also occur due to fungal infections. Symptoms can occur around swollen nails, redness, pain when touched, can form a collection of pus.
Water fleas or tinea pedis are fungal infections that cause symptoms in the form of scaly rashes that are itchy and are found between the toes, blisters, dry skin, thickened, hardened, and rough on the soles or sides of the feet, cracked and peeling skin, discolored nails , and nail thickening and damage.
Amoxicillin is a type of penicillin class of antibiotics used to treat infections of various types of bacteria. Treatment of each disease depends on the cause. I suggest you consult directly with a general practitioner or a dermatologist so that a thorough examination can be carried out, such as question and answer, physical examination of the foot, and supporting examinations if necessary, so that treatment can be given according to the cause of your illness.
As for the things you can do right now are:
Don't wear fake nails for a long time.
Dry your hands and feet after touching water.
Avoid the habit of nail biting or gouging the skin around the nails.
Don't cut the nail too short. Make sure to cut the nail parallel to the tip of the finger.
Always keep your feet clean and use a moisturizer.
Use socks or shoes that are comfortable and don't press your toes.
Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you.
