Duration Of Nail Growth In Patients With Cantengan?
Morning doctor. Last Friday I pulled out some of my nails that were hit with hooks, today my schedule is to open the bandages. Just when I opened the bandage there was still a little pus on the thumb that was used with the stick. What do you think is the cause of pus? Even though I keep my nails so they don’t get exposed to water. I had already asked the doctor concerned but his response was just a smile and did not answer my question so I asked HealthReplies.com. Please answer yes, thanks. 😊
Good evening, thanks for the question
Cutaneous or paronychia is an inflammatory condition in the tissues around the nail caused by the growth of the nail inwards. Handling is with the removal of nails so that new normal nails can grow back.
During the healing period complications can occur namely an infection marked by the formation of pus in the scar, fever, and persistent pain. Infection is not only caused by water-contaminated wounds, but can also be caused by:
1. Not maintaining hygiene around the wound
2. Do not routinely replace the wound dressing bandages
3. Poor nutrition
4. Using closed shoes
5. Decreased immunity
To overcome this, consume antibiotics from your doctor routinely, change bandages regularly at least once a day, keep wounds dry, eat nutritious and protein-rich foods, eat fruits, and exercise regular control to monitor the healing process.
That's all, hope you can help
