Nails Grow Abnormally?
Hello, I want to ask when I was in class 2 until I had my nails grow inside the doctor pulled out at that time, but now until Kls 1 has high, the nails are growing flat, like piling up and the thumbs are getting bigger.
Hello Partha, thank you for asking the HealthReplies.com team.
Nail extraction is usually done according to medical indications, such as ingrown nails, bacterial or fungal infections that cause damage to the nail tissue, and nails damaged due to injury. Generally, nails that have been removed can grow back like other normal nails, but can also grow abnormally like you are experiencing at the moment. This healing varies from person to person, depending on the part of the nail that is removed in whole or in part, wound care after extraction, and physical factors (such as nutritional conditions and history of certain diseases). The duration of healing also varies from 1-2 weeks.
If complaints are felt to be disturbing, it should be consulted to a doctor for interviews, physical examinations, and supporting examinations. The doctor may do the extraction (nail extraction) again if needed. It is important to pay attention to the things suggested by your doctor after the removal of the nails, so that the nails can grow normally as they used to, because the success of treatment is very dependent on each individual.
Things that can be done after the nail removal procedure include:
Make sure the nail area is always clean, dry, and covered to prevent infection.
Raise your legs or arms above your heart in the first 24 hours, to help reduce swelling and pain after the procedure
Compress with ice water for 15-20 minutes for several times
We recommend that you do not use shoes and socks that are too tight and use socks that are made from absorbing sweat
Re-control 3-5 days after the procedure or if you feel the condition of the wound has worsened or there are complications
Thus information from me, may be useful.
