Overcoming Cantengan Nails That Recur Even After They Have Been Removed?
Hello dokI want to ask about cantengan. Look, my right toenails grow a little deeper and as a result feel a little pain in that section. Actually, this thumb nail has been extracted from all surfaces in the past year, but for some reason it is now again. The ointment is used on the part and covered with gauze to avoid exposure to dust and water for 3 days. My question. Is it okay if you use the ointment? Please explain doc. Thank you
Canengan can occur due to impact or trauma to the nails and the surrounding skin both hands or feet or can arise due to infection of the skin around the nails. Symptoms that can be caused are pain in the nails with a bump, fluid buildup or can be festering and bleeding, swelling or inflammation occurs on the skin of the nail tip, and overgrowth of the toe. Some conditions can make recurring cantengan such as the habit of cutting nails too short, the shape of certain nails, skin hygiene of both feet or hands is not good, the use of footwear that is uncomfortable or not according to size, or other health factors or genetic factors.
Handling itself is to routinely maintain nail cleanliness can be washed using warm water and soap, keeping the ends of the nails so as not to penetrate the skin, and the use of antibiotic creams can be used if signs of infection arise. If it is not resolved, it is necessary to do a doctor's examination and action to overcome it, one of them is by nail extraction especially if there are signs of infection and inflammation of the nails that are experiencing it.
If later it has been resolved then prevention efforts need to be made so that it does not re-repeat by paying attention to how to cut nails, use comfortable and not narrow footwear, maintain nail cleanliness, and maintain general health so as not to cause health problems that increase the risk of incision.
