Hello Karel, thank you for using the HealthReplies.com service.
Symptoms and signs experienced by your sister are found in several diseases such as:
Paronychia is a skin infection around the nails or toenails, which is generally caused by bacteria, but can also occur due to fungal infections. The initial symptom of paronychia is generally the condition of the fingers around the nails that are swollen, red, and painful to the touch. In some cases, it can bleed and form a collection of pus. Cantengan is a condition of the growth of the side of the nail that protrudes inward so as to cause swelling, redness, and pain at the angle of the fingertips. Injury to the nail (subungual hematoma) is a bruise or bleeding that occurs under the surface of the nail, swollen fingers and nails, and pain when touched or pressed. Usually after some time, black nails will be detached from the fingers by themselves and will grow back into intact nails within a period of 2 to 6 months. I suggest you bring your sister to consult directly to a general practitioner, so that a thorough examination can be done, such as questions and answers, and physical examination of the nails, so that treatment can be given in accordance with your sister's diagnosis.
As for things your brother can do right now:
Soak feet in warm water for 15 to 20 minutes, 3 to 5 times a day, to reduce pain and swelling. Take pain relievers, such as paracetamines at the dosage indicated on the drug packaging. Choose comfortable footwear, especially those that are open on the fingers, if paronychia occurs in the area around the toenails. Propping the gap between the skin and nails with cotton or flossagar helps the nail grow on the skin Cut the nails that stick in a straight line Thus the information I can give, hopefully can help you.
