Handling Of An Almost Loose Finger Nail?
, how to remove the thumb nails that have died due to falling heavy objects. And only half the nails die, while the new nails have grown. Because there are parts of the nail that do not die because it collided with a dead nail that cannot be pulled out. How do I get nails pulled out and new nails grow well?
Hello Widya, thank you for asking.
Nails affected by blunt force trauma as in your case, can become dead. Dead nails will actually date themselves due to being pushed by new nails that grow from below. The problem is sometimes nails don't always die. As a result, new nails grow less than optimal.
Actually you can wait slowly until the nails die pushed by new nails. Or you can go to the doctor. The doctor will do nail extraction, so the new nails can start growing again. Nail extraction should not be done alone, because of the risk of injury and infection. After extracting the nails by the doctor, the nails will be given antiseptic fluid and an antibiotic ointment and then covered with clean gauze. Clean nails every day with boiled water. After the tissue dries, you no longer need to wrap it with gauze. It's just that, because the tissue is soft, it might be a bit painful when depressed. Use thick socks to protect from shoe pressure.
That is my explanation. Hopefully can help. Regards.
