The Nails On The Big Toe Turn Blue After Wearing Narrow Shoes?
I want to ask, I wear small shoes for work for a week. Now, my big toe hurts, it will turn red and turn blue. feet but what I don’t know is the cause, I guess the danger is that my toenails are turning blue again
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Excessive pressure on the toes due to the use of shoes that are too narrow can cause your fingers to lack oxygen, especially in the area near the tip of the nail. If your toenail is also not cut properly periodically, then this nail can grow into the skin of the toe and trigger inflammation (cantengan, paronichia). Both of these conditions can ultimately make your nails redden, then bluish, until it feels painful, blackened, then raised nails. Your hand nails that are experiencing the same may also be caused by the habit of cutting nails that are not right. Not only that, complaints like this may also be caused by nail infections (often due to fungus), mechanical injury to the nails, lack of nutrition, impaired immunity (for example due to psoriasis), and so on.
For your condition to be clearly identified, you should check with your doctor, skin specialist, or surgeon. Simply by checking directly, or taking a sample of the finger / nail tissue of your hands and feet, often the doctor has been able to give you the best management. In more severe cases, surgery can also be done by surgery, which is to remove some or all of the problematic nails, as well as clean the area of skin underneath.
In the meantime, what you should do is:
Take good care of the cleanliness of your hands and feet
No longer used to using narrow shoes
Choose shoes that fit the size of your feet, clean, dry, and padded padded
Don't forcibly lift or remove your nails
Trim your nails regularly with straight, not too deep at the edges
Take paracetamol and compress your sore fingers with warm water to make it more comfortable
Get plenty of rest, and don't over-exertion with your feet and hands that are experiencing complaints
Hope this helps ...
