Hi Tarjo,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Cantengan (paronychia) can occur when a nail grows and breaks into the skin. This usually occurs if you are used to cutting your nails too deeply. The entry of the nails into the skin can then trigger inflammation and infection. Therefore, sufferers often feel not only pain, but also swollen, reddish skin, and even discharge that smells bad.


If it is true that you are experiencing a sore, then using alcohol might help clean the area around the affected skin. However, this does not necessarily solve the focus of the problem. If the nail that grows into the skin is not released successfully, then your complaint will not be completely healed.


We recommend that you first visit the doctor at the closest health facility to your domicile. That way, the doctor can judge whether it is true that what you are experiencing is caused by anemic. If the symptoms of inflammation that occur are severe enough, the general doctor will recommend that you undergo a small operation, which aims to cut the nail that grows into the skin while cleaning the pus-filled debris, dead tissue and jaw cells so that the complaint gets better. This operation is of course done under anesthesia (anesthetic) so you don't feel pain.


In the meantime, you should just clean the affected area with clean water. Or, it is safer if you use a solution of povidone iodine. The use of alcohol, although it is permissible, often causes a painful, irritating sensation. Also avoid using narrow, dirty, especially wet footwear. Avoid pricking your fingers or nails that are hooked, as there is a risk of causing a secondary infection that is harder to cure. If the pain that appears is severe, before checking with your doctor, you can first take paracetamol to relieve it.


Hope this helps ..
