Overcoming Nail Fungus That Spreads Until Pus Comes Out?
Hello, r n r nI’m Lya. I want to ask you about nail fungus. R nAbout 7 months ago my pinky was exposed to nail fungus. At first my nails were broken beyond the normal nail limit to be cut, then a little blood appeared. Over time the blood red color turned brown and spread throughout my nails. Until finally I can cut off his pinky nails and I clean the dirt that is d above the nail meat. At the base of the nail like pus that comes out along with the growth of the nail again. So that the nails grow abnormally because there’s still like pus underneath it. Some times I clean, but at the base of the nails that always appear pus again. And that often causes pain … r nThen, 2 months ago something similar happened to my ring finger. Like the beginning of my little pinkie who was sick … r nSy, I already went to the dermatologist, given nail cream. But this week there hasn’t been a change … r nMy colleague’s medical team said there had to be an act of suctioning pus / dirt from inside … r n Is that true? What action is right for my csse? R nThanks before ..
Hello Missly, Thank you for the question.
The presence of pus under the nail bed is a sign of nail infection or in medical language known as paronychia. This condition can be caused by a bacterial infection or a fungal infection. In addition to the collection of pus, other symptoms are the area around the nails that are swollen, red, and painful. To diagnose this condition the doctor only needs to look at the condition of the sufferer's fingers. Subsequent treatment depends on the cause and severity of the patient's condition. If it is caused by a bacterial infection the doctor will give antibiotics whereas if it is caused by a fungal infection, the doctor will give an antifungal. The medicine given can be in the form of ointments or drinking tablets. If the pus collection is quite large / large, the doctor will recommend actions to remove this pus, for example by making an incision on the skin to remove pus or if the patient's nails appear to be growing inward, then the doctor will suggest removing the nail either partially or completely, so that the pus also can exit.
Because I do not know how severe your condition is, I cannot tell you which treatment is the best. Therefore, please consult your doctor again if this condition does not heal after completing treatment from the doctor. Or, you can also consult with other doctors to ask for a second opinion regarding appropriate treatment.
Feel free to soak the infected finger in warm water. Soaking with warm water can help cure. Avoid the use of shoes, especially those that are too narrow. You should use footwear with an open front.
