Hello, I have a problem with my finger, so I was cutting my nails by accident. I pulled my fingernail causing the side of my nail to bleed, a few days after bleeding my finger swelled up and oozed a thick green liquid, if I squeezed it it would keep coming out. What is the treatment for this problem and what disease is it? That is all and thank you

Hi Lewis,

Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

Nails that are pulled to the point where the surrounding skin is injured and bleeding can be a good medium for disease-causing bacteria to multiply. As a result of this bacterial infection, the skin around the nail can become inflamed. This condition can be characterized by skin that feels painful, reddish, swells, and produces abnormal secretions (greenish yellow resembling pus).

Complaints as you are experiencing should be examined directly to the doctor for further treatment. Usually, the doctor will evaluate the condition of your wound and perform wound care. That way, the pus and dead tissue that has accumulated on the skin can be removed so the infection doesn't spread further. After that, if necessary, stitches will be performed to close the open wound. Then, the doctor will generally prescribe several types of drugs, such as painkillers and antibiotics to treat complaints and eradicate the bacteria that cause the infection.

With proper treatment, infection of the nails, fingers, and surrounding tissue is generally not a dangerous thing. At this time, you should not squeeze the injured skin excessively, especially using hands that are doubtful of cleanliness. Be diligent in cleaning injured nails and fingers, using clean gauze that has been moistened with intravenous fluids (NaCl). If you feel swelling and pain that is quite severe, you can take paracetamol for a while.

Hope it helps ya..
