Some individuals frequently realize that their fingernails and toenails deteriorate as a result of harm to them. This illness is caused by a bacterial infection known as Paronychia.
Paronychia is an infection-induced inflammation of the skin surrounding the fingernails and toes. It might happen all at once or gradually.
Trauma, irritation, or infection of the nails produced by bacteria entering a damaged skin around the curticle or nail folds may all cause nail inflammation.
Paronychia is classified into two categories, which are as follows:
1) Paronychia Acute
2) Paronychia chronic
It is an infection that develops on the fingernails as a result of biting, picking, manicures, and other activities. The infection is caused by Staphylococcus and may spread quickly.
2) PERIODICAL PARONYCHIA
This illness is caused by a variety of infectious agents, including candida yeast and bacteria. It progresses gradually over time. It usually affects persons who deal with water a lot because moist skin and excessive soakings of the hands and legs in water disturb the natural barrier of the curticle, enabling germs to grow.
- Skin redness around the nails
- Alteration of nail form, color, or texture.
