Causes Of Black Lines Under The Nails?
Good night. I want to ask. About 2 days yll I saw on the ring finger of my right hand there was like a line but like a black dot. I thought it was on the nails, after I cut the nails it turned out that it was under the nails, namely the skin under the nails. At first I thought it was like an animal entering because I saw it from yesterday that it seemed to move from the starting position, progressing outward. Before I saw that, I looked on the internet if there was a black line on the nail it could be a sign of cancer. Then what I experienced. Thank you
From the information you have conveyed, there is a complaint under the nail that there are black lines or dots, possibly due to bleeding under the nail. This can occur because of a history of previous trauma to the associated nail. In the bleeding area under the nail, this black spot can move forward as it follows the growth of your nail, but if bleeding is found in the nail bed, this bleeding persists at that point.
Therefore, it is necessary to conduct a direct examination with your family doctor or a skin specialist to numb the cause of this complaint, whether due to a rupture of the blood vessels under the nail, or other conditions, such as anemia, fungal infection, kidney problems or perhaps heart problems.
To ascertain the risk and cause, the doctor can evaluate the progress of this complaint, so that if a risk is suspected or accompanied by other complaints and after several weeks of treatment there is no improvement, the doctor can plan further examinations of your clinical condition.
Special management is not carried out in cases or conditions that are normal and mild, so that periodic evaluations and consultations are carried out.
