Causes Of Blue Nails?
r wbrnmalem~rnrnI want to ask this, right at that time my left finger was pierced with pins 3 times, so in the morning I took a shower my nails on my left finger arrived all blue but my right nail it’s normal. Well, I read “on google it’s because the blood lacks oxygen. nwassalamualaikum
Thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Complaints of blue nails and the condition you mean lack of oxygen in medical terms can be called cyanosis. Cyanosis is a condition where the limbs can turn blue, generally often seen on the lips, nails, or other body parts due to the lack of oxygen in the tissues in the body. This situation is an emergency if it is caused by several conditions such as heart disorders, diseases related to the respiratory tract and seizures, or complaints of a blue body accompanied by shortness of breath, cold sweat and chest pain. This is a condition that can be life threatening, so immediate treatment is needed.
However, cyanosis can also be caused by disorders of the body's peripheral tissues, such as cold temperatures, the use of accessories that are too tight or abnormalities in blood vessels. Before that, you need to know how blue you mean, is there a difference with a finger that has been pierced by a needle? because it could be that your needle-pierced finger has an infection so that it gives a different color than the other fingers.
If the cause of your complaint is only due to changes in temperature or the use of accessories that are too tight, when the temperature has returned to its original state or the accessories have been removed, your nails can return to normal, but if your complaint persists, or the finger affected by the needle experiences pain, excreting pus or accompanied by fever, you should immediately consult a doctor, to find out this requires an immediate examination by a doctor, so that the cause can be identified and appropriate treatment can be given.
That's all I can say, hope it helps.
