Toenails Are Often Loose, Bleeding And Festering?
Good morning, I want to ask my husband that his toenails often come off, and if he has removed all of them, he must have also taken off (Right toenails and left toenails. The toenails before they are bleeding, festering, then come off. What I want to ask you is that because of what it could be like that.
Thank you for the question.
Judging from your explanation, where your husband's nails often bleed, festering, and eventually come off, then the possible cause is due to an injury, for example when a nail experiences a bump, pinched, or is pressed by a heavy object. This injury can be realized consciously, or not, for example when working, exercising, or other activities. Because of the injury, the blood vessels under the nails can rupture, triggering bleeding. This condition, if not treated properly, can have a secondary infection to fester. Bleeding and infection at the bottom of the nail can damage the nail matrix so that the nails eventually come loose.
In addition to injuries, complaints on your husband's nails may also be caused by other factors, such as fungal infections or other microorganisms, malnutrition, psoriasis, immune disorders, and many other potential diseases.
It's better if you ask your husband to check his condition directly to the doctor or dermatologist. Depending on the cause, your husband's condition can later be handled by a doctor differently. For now, what your husband can do is:
Maintain better personal hygiene, including by diligently washing hands and feet with antiseptic soap, as well as shortening nails regularly (but not too short) Avoid carelessly exchanging personal items with others (including toiletries, gloves, footwear) Do not use footwear that are too narrow, wet, moist, or dirty. Consume a variety of foods that are nutritionally balanced, especially those containing rich calcium, iron, selenium, zinc, and other vitamins and minerals. Drink more. Don't smoke. Hopefully helps.
