How To Deal With Festering Nails?
I am 27 years old. My right hand nails ring finger that has 2 months festering under the nail under the skin. The pus moved around, after recovering at the angle of the left nail bed, moving pus again at the right angle of the nail bed. And so on. During that time I was the one who always operated to the bottom of his nails, and the pus out. By using nail pinch. What else can I do to get better?
Hello Suja'a, thank you for asking.
Infected and festering nails are called paronychia. These complaints are quite often found. Generally occurs in areas of nails that are always damp and wet, although of course infection can occur in any nail regardless of damp or not. Paronychia can be caused by bacteria or fungi. If the infection is not treated properly, it will always recur, especially if the cause is fungus. In addition, work factors also affect healing. For example in people who work in contact with certain chemicals. Factors in diet and lifestyle also influence healing. Avoid cigarettes, caffeine, and alcohol so that the immune system is better.
You should consult with a doctor about this problem. The doctor will remove and clean the pus well. If necessary, the doctor will assess whether or not the nail must be removed. After that the doctor will give the right medicine.
Thus my explanation, hopefully can help. Regards.
