Overcoming Blackened Nails After Pinched?
Hello r nI want to ask my finger nails were pinched and then there was blood clot in them then I compressed it with ice water. After 2 days I soaked in hot water and 2 days later the black clotted blood came out. The first thing that my finger was swollen, finally it was as usual but my friend said that my nails had to be removed, afraid that there would be rot. So what’s the solution? R nDo I need to worry
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Nail extraction or nail extraction, is a procedure in the medical world that aims to avoid damage caused by nail abnormalities, whether due to injury, infection, congenital abnormalities or the like. There are several reasons for nail extraction, and they are:
Ingrown nails or ingrown nails Structural abnormalities, bends or other deformities Nail fungal infection Recurrent inflammation of the nail folds
In your case, actually if the clotting blood has come out, and there are no complaints other than maybe pain due to inflammation, and the nails themselves are neat, not broken or crushed, nor are there any parts of the nail that have poked into the finger or anything like that, we think there is no need for extraction. But because we didn't see it in person, anything could happen. So our advice is that you should have your nails checked at the nearest general practitioner, to decide whether to remove them or not. What is clear, not all collisions or injuries to the nails must be resolved by nail removal.
Meanwhile, avoid touching or scratching the area, keep it dry, wear comfortable footwear, keep it clean, and have it checked by a doctor immediately. So, hopefully it answers your question.
