What Is Paronychia ?

A paronychia is an infection of the skin that surrounds a toenail or fingernail. There are two different types of paronychia, acute and chronic. 

Causes:-
There are multiple causes of both acute and chronic paronychia. The underlying cause of each is bacteria, Candida yeast, or a combination of the two agents.

Symptoms –
An acute paronychia causes throbbing pain, redness, warmth and swelling in the skin around a nail. In some cases, a small collection of pus forms under the skin next to the nail, or underneath the nail itself. Often, only one nail is affected.
A chronic paronychia usually causes less dramatic symptoms than an acute paronychia. Typically, the area around the nail is tender, red and mildly swollen; the cuticle is missing; and the skin around the nail feels moist or "boggy." Several nails on the same hand may be affected at the same time.

Diagnosis -
If you have a mild acute paronychia, you usually can make the diagnosis yourself. Look for throbbing pain, swelling and redness in an area of damaged skin around a nail. If you are diabetic, have several affected fingers or toes, or have severe symptoms (pus, fever, severe pain), you must be evaluated by a doctor.

 Prevention-
To prevent paronychia, try the following:
• Keep your hands and feet dry and clean.
• Wear rubber gloves with an absorbent cotton lining if your hands are exposed routinely to water or harsh chemicals.
• Be gentle when you manicure your nails. Avoid cutting your cuticles or pushing them back.
• Avoid biting your nails and picking at the skin around your nails.
• If you have diabetes, keep your blood sugar levels within a normal range by following your diet and taking your medications.

Treatment:-
Homeopathy is the best treatment for treating paronychia.
