Why Is There A Blackish Blue Color Appearing Between The Fingernails But It Doesn’t Hurt?
Excuse me, I want to ask. On the sidelines of the nails suddenly appear blackish blue like bruises and do not feel pain. Patients aged 45 years. Is there an explanation? Thank you
Hello Vinda, thank you for using HealthReplies.com.
Healthy nails are reddish nails on the part that sticks to the finger and whitish color on the part of the nail that is not attached to the finger. Bluish color (cyanosis) on the nails can be caused by various causes, one of which is due to lack of oxygen in the blood (hypoxia).
The blackish blue color on the nails can only describe the condition
Bleeding or sores in the tissue under the nail, such as injury, and pinched. Being in a cold environment Being at high altitudes (eg mountains) Asthma, Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (COPD) Severe anemia, shock However, if not accompanied by other typical symptoms, not always black-blue nails ensure the occurrence of the above diseases . If this makes you feel worried, then I suggest to see a general practitioner so that a thorough examination can be done, such as questions and answers, examination of vital signs, examination of oxygen levels in the blood (oxymeter), physical examination of the conjunctiva of the eye, heart and lungs and additional tests if necessary, such as routine blood laboratories, so that treatment can be given according to your diagnosis.
As for the things you can do right now are:
- Use warm clothing when in a cold area.
- Consume enough water
- Eat nutritious foods, especially those rich in iron.
- Avoid fatty foods
- Enough rest
- Avoid stress
