HOW TO PREVENT NAIL STINGING?

In patients with advanced nail stinging, it becomes difficult to wear shoes, socks become frequently dirty, problems such as inflammation and abscesses occur.

WHAT CAUSES NAIL STINGING? WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF NAIL STINGING?

Nail stinging is an infection that is manifested by swelling, redness, and pain, especially on the inner or outer edge of the big toe nail. Mechanically, it starts with the nail edge sinking into the flesh. Complaints and symptoms increase. The pain that initially occurs only when you touch a hard place becomes a serious infection that pollutes the sock with its discharge after a while.

.
WHO HAS NAIL STINGING?

It occurs in more or less every age group. A lot of things can cause nail stings. Often wearing tight shoes, improper cutting of nails and feet that sweat a lot can cause nail stinging. Especially in young people, nail stinging is seen on feet that sweat a lot.

.
IS A PEDICURE GOOD FOR NAIL STINGING?

If you have an inflamed nail sting, its treatment is definitely a surgical procedure. Applying ointment there or using antibiotics will not solve the problem. Having a pedicure in hairdressers is also not the solution, it can even enlarge the problem instead of solving it.

Because at the heart of the problem lies the fact that part of the nail mechanically enters the flesh and creates inflammation. If this mechanical obstacle is eliminated with a small surgical intervention, the problem will be eliminated.

.
WHAT TREATMENT FOR NAIL STINGING, HOW IS IT APPLIED?

For healthy treatment planning, the assessment of the nail must be done well. Immediately after that, usually the sunken part is taken, and sometimes the suture is thrown. Here it is necessary to know that pulling the nail immediately is not a solution.

Recurrence can also be seen as a result of wire treatments. However, a high degree of success can be achieved with a method called” matrisectomy with phenol”.

.
SIMPLE AND EASY MEASURES TO PREVENT SINKING

Only the sunken part at the edge of the nail is taken up to the root and the Sunken Place is blinded by a chemical substance so that the nail does not come out of here again and form a sunken. In this way, the possibility of being sunk again is minimized.

PAY ATTENTION TO THESE TO PREVENT NAIL STINGING
