1 Answer:

Hello Nazaa, thank you for the question.


The pain that arises in your nails should be explored further. Namely what kind of pain you feel, whether it feels sharp, dull, or like a bruise, then is there any impact in the area of ​​your fingers and nails, and so on. Why? because the causes of this condition can vary, including:

There is trauma or impact to the nail that causes pain in the nail
Inflammation of the nails, for example a bacterial nail infection
Ingrown nails or ferns, this condition can cause quite annoying pain
Damage to the nails, for example due to excessive use of nail polish or acetone-based nail polish, this will cause the nail structure to be damaged and become uncomfortable
Allergy to nail polish or acetone
There is bleeding under the nail
Other medical conditions such as toenail fungus


My advice, try to break the habit of using nail polish first, and monitor your condition. If in the next 2-3 days the pain does not go away, increases the pain or interferes with your activities, immediately consult a doctor. You should also reduce your use of acetone nail polish remover, as this can cause damage to your nails, such as cracked and brittle nails. In addition, you can also try compressing the sore nails with cold compresses and warm compresses, to reduce the pain. Consumption of analgesics should be done with the doctor's advice.
