Overcoming Chronic Cantengan Not Go Away?
Hello, I am a ‘cantengan’ patient who has been there for maybe 7 years. I want to ask for a recommendation because I am tired of going to hospitals, but the same method is taking antibiotics, which are said to relieve pain (?). Listen, he also said that if you take a lot of antibiotics later you will be immune to antibiotics. So if you come to the doctor and he is told to use medicine, I don’t want to because I don’t think of anything. My friends who got it were operated on but how come I don’t? Please enlighten me because I have been with this for a long time, but the handling is just like that, is there any other way besides taking medicine? Thanks
Good evening, thanks for the question
Cutaneous or paronychia is an inflammatory condition in the tissues around the nail caused by the growth of the nail inwards. Symptoms include redness and pain on the skin around the pus-filled nails, pain on the nail surface, changes in nail shape, color, and texture.
Agents that cause long-lasting or chronic paronychia are commonly caused by fungal infections, but can also be caused by bacterial infections. Because fungi grow well in a humid environment, fungal infections are caused more because hands or feet are often exposed to water for long periods of time.
Sometimes paronychia can extend to the bottom of the nail. In such cases the handling is by removing the nails so that the new normal nail can grow back within a few months. In untreated paronychia can cause the nails to grow apart from the nail bed, called 'floating nails'. Carry out further consultations with a general surgeon for further action.
To prevent similar complaints from recurring, do:
1. Keep the hand fan feet always clean to prevent bacterial growth
2. Avoid trauma to the nail caused by cutting, pulling, manicure or pedicure on your nails.
3. Dry your feet that are wet or moist.
That's all, hope you can help
