Nails Feel Sore With Wounds That Don’t Heal?
I want to ask, at first I was uncomfortable if the nails on my hands/feet were long, but because at that time there was no nail cutter so I used my hands to scrape the long nails on my feet, I don’t know how deep the nails I corrected because they fit night, but after the new pain I stopped it.
Hi Anisa, thank you for visiting HealthReplies.com.
Complaints of sore nails and swollen nails can lead to paronychia, which is an infection around the nail that can be caused by bacterial infection or fungal infection. When you scrape nails with tools that are not known to be clean and are not the tools used, it should increase the risk of infection in the nails and surrounding skin. In addition to paronychia, complaints of pain and swelling in the nail can be caused by an abscess, namely the formation of a pus-like fluid due to the infection process.
Wounds that do not heal can indeed be caused by high blood sugar levels, but can also be caused by other factors, such as improper wound care, lack of adequate nutrition for wound healing. Given that your wound does not improve for more than 2 weeks, you should immediately consult a doctor so that an immediate examination of your condition can be carried out so that the treatment given can be appropriate. The doctor will treat your wound according to its grade and may also prescribe antibiotics and painkillers for you. Meanwhile, there are some tips that you can do at home to help wound healing, such as:
Treat wounds properly
Eat nutritious and nutritious food, especially foods that contain high protein, such as milk, eggs, fish, meat
Avoid using sandals or shoes that are too narrow
Avoid strenuous activities such as running.
Hope it is useful.
