Hello Umi, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.


Swollen and suppurating hands are a sign of Paronychia. Paronychia is a skin infection that appears around the nails of the fingers and toes that can be caused by infection, water, or injury. Usually in addition to swollen and suppurating nails, patients also complain of pain in the skin around the nails, bleeding nails, and can even cause fever.


Paronychia can appear slowly and last a week, or appear suddenly and last for only 1-2 days. If left untreated, this condition can cause serious infections or even lose some of your nails. I suggest you take your child to see a general practitioner or a dermatologist so that a thorough examination can be done, such as a physical examination of the nails, and treatment that is consistent with your diagnosis, such as pus removal from the nails that are done in a sterile manner.


As for the things you and your child can do now to reduce complaints are:


- Soaking hands in warm water 2-3 times a day to reduce swelling and pain.


- Taking anti-pain medications, such as paracetamol with the dosage listed on the drug packaging


- Don't bite the nail


- Don't soak your nails in water for a long time


- Do not use gloves or artificial nails for too long


- Always wash your hands thoroughly when touched with substances that can cause irritation


Such information that I can provide, hopefully can help you and your child.
