Pain In The Fingernail Area After 3 Weeks Of Pinching The Door?
Hi doc, my right finger nail is pinched by the door.. Dhh 3 weeks but it still hurts.. What do I need to do?
From the situation you experience, pain in the fingernail area after being pinched by the door may be caused by bruising. Pinched fingernails can usually cause bruising under the nail, which is characterized by bluish, swollen swelling under the nail. Door clamps that are quite hard may also make the nails come off. These bruises usually take longer to heal than bruises on other areas of the body. Bruises under the nails will tend to be more painful, because the tips of the fingers have nerve endings that are more sensitive. Usually the healing of a bruised nail can take up to 1 month.
if indeed your condition is caused by bruising on the fingertips, then you can apply a cold compress. do a pressure bandage on the tip of the nail (not too tight). You can take over-the-counter pain relievers at pharmacies.
But apart from that, the situation you are experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:
the nail is falling off the base
Therefore, you can check directly with the doctor so that the doctor can examine your condition firsthand, so that later the doctor can provide the right therapy according to your situation. You may need additional tests, such as x-rays.
