Nail Pinched The Door To Become Swollen And Bleeding Inside?
Hello. So last week my finger blew on the door in the car and kept bleeding inside. Terua is cold pressed to blue under the nails. Then I compress with revanol and consume paracetamol and amoxilin. Then I open the compress under the clamped nail so that it is swollen and the pain has diminished. That’s why the swelling is under the nail and what’s the solution?
Hello Laura Hutauruk,
When a part of our body experiences trauma such as bumping or being pinched, it can form a bruise (hematoma), due to the expulsion of blood from the blood vessels to the surrounding tissue. Bruises that form under the nail are called subungual hematomas. Subungual hematoma often results from nails being pinched against the door, being stepped on, falling from heavy objects or sports injuries.
Symptoms that arise in subungual hematoma are:
Dark red or purplish spots or dark blue under the nails
Moderate to severe nail pain
Swelling in the finger area
If there is a fracture / fracture on the finger bone it can be followed by deformity (deformity) of the finger compared to the other side of the normal finger
Generally, subungual hematoma can improve by itself within> 1 week. Cold compresses immediately after the event can reduce pain and swelling. If the bleeding under the nail is> 50% of the nail's surface area, it may require examination and medical treatment. This extensive bleeding can cause severe pain, so it is necessary to take action to remove bleeding, for example by using a tool to make a hole to bleed, suck blood with a large needle or by pulling out a nail so the doctor can evaluate whether there is a section under a large nail that is torn so that requires suturing to stop the bleeding.
Patients will generally be given pain medication if they have subungual hematoma. Antibiotics are not routinely done, especially if there are open sores. Patients are advised to limit activity with bruised fingers, lift the part higher when lying down (propped up with a pillow), and control to the doctor if symptoms worsen after several days. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
