Overcoming Black Knuckles And Hands?
, all my knuckles and toes look darker and my index finger is also starting to turn black from playing the guitar a lot. How to remove it? Is there a drug in the pharmacy? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fingers that often experience excessive friction, one of which is the result of playing the guitar often, can trigger hardening of the skin called calluses (callus). Callused skin has a different elasticity from normal skin, as a result it is easy to get injured and irritated so that it can appear blackened due to post-inflammatory hypopigmentation.
It could also be that your nail bed turns black due to inadequate blood perfusion, for example due to:
Excessive pressure Smoking Peripheral artery disease Heart disorders Anemia, etc. If you don't feel any other complaints, such as finger pain, shortness of breath, dizziness, palpitations, etc., you can try the following efforts first to address your complaints :
In the meantime, limit playing guitar first, or use special finger protectors. Regularly wash hands. Don't smoke. Don't exfoliate forcibly. Eat a healthy and balanced diet. Avoid wearing clothes, jewelry, or watches that are too tight. However, if the complaint doesn't improve within 1 -2 weeks, or other complaints appear as mentioned above, then you should immediately consult a doctor so that you can get the best treatment.
I hope this helps.
