Lumps at the tips of the nails can have a variety of causes. From the situation you are experiencing, maybe it can be caused by a wart. Warts are a disease that can occur in various parts of the body. If you previously had a history of warts, they can recur at a later date.
Warts are an infection caused by a certain type of HPV (human papilloma virus). HPV infection is transmitted through direct contact with sufferers or objects that contain the virus. HPV attacks the skin layer, so that the skin layer becomes thickened and warts form. Warts can recur even though they have disappeared before. Warts on the fingertips can cause a flesh-like growth with a rough surface. If the condition you are experiencing is due to warts, then it will require treatment using cryotherapy or wart removal surgery.
But besides that, the condition you are experiencing can also be caused by other causes such as:
Canned ulcers / paronychia. Certain types of tumors, therefore, if your condition does not improve or the lumps multiply, you should see a dermatologist directly, so that the doctor can check your condition directly. Thus the doctor can provide the right therapy for you. Maybe later additional examinations will be carried out such as a biopsy if necessary.
It is recommended that you wash your shoes and socks regularly. Don't borrow socks or shoes from each other. Don't use shoes that are too narrow. Maintain hygiene of the nail area regularly, use an antiseptic soap.
