Common Questions and Answers about Finger nail bed infection

That's also why you're more likely to get an infection in your toenail than in your fingernail. A nail infection usually begins as a white or yellow spot under the tip of your nail. As the fungal infection spreads deeper, your nail may discolor, thicken and develop crumbling edges. Sometimes your nail may separate from the nail bed, and the skin around it may become red and swollen. Anti-fungal ointments like Econazole (Spectazole) or Oxiconazole (Oxistat) may be applied to it.
why is the nail on my left hand ring finger split vertically down the whole nail?
The nail was ripped off and part of the upper nail bed (in the body of the finger itself) is exposed. He put the nail back into place, however the nail bed (?) is still exposed. Should he go to a doctor and get stitches for the injury? See photo: [IMG]http://i51.tinypic.com/2nbd2k7.

Hello, The symptoms are suggestive of fungal infection of the finger as well as nail. In onychomycosis(nail fungal infection) nail plate can have a thickened, yellow, or cloudy appearance. The nails can become rough and crumbly, or can separate from the nail bed. Topical and oral antifungals are needed which are available under prescription. My sincere advice would be to consult a dermatologist and get a KOH examination of the nail and skin specimen done to confirm the diagnosis.

If her nail bed is affected will she regrow the nail? Is there a chance her nail will never grow back? Is it unusual to have a nail not regrow?
One of my nail grows very thick, hard and black on one side, with a raised nail bed which extended under the cuticle of that finger. The black raised nail has now changed the shape of the finger; making one side of the finger & nail bed higher and the other side normal. The blackness was only on one side, but has now extended to the middle of the nail. I have noticed this abnormal nail for over 20 years. I don't remember if I injured the nail in my childhood or teenage years.
I have this problem with my nail, right hand middle finger, it was infected by fungus (That’s what Doctor said) maybe 6 years back, it was itchy and pus all over the finger, swollen with swollen nailbed and nail growing very rough or rigid mass over the bed with pale yellow. Treated for fungal infection with local ointment and antibiotics, and by maybe 1year, most of the symptoms went away, with healthy finger.

I have had finger nail fungi for some years now. Whenever i let the nail grow, it does not stick to the nail bed, therefore i tend to pull it off. At the moment, the finger does not have a nail on it. The worst part is, it is my ring finger. So Doctor, please tell me what to do.
Hello, The symptoms are suggestive of fungal infection of the finger as well as nail. In onychomycosis(nail fungal infection) nail plate can have a thickened, yellow, or cloudy appearance.

I currently have no nail on my finger and therefore the nail bed is exposed... slightly red and sore... with a few cuts.... 10 hours after the nail removal i fingered a lady in her vagina... finger was deep in her ***** for 5 minutes. Since the nail bed was exposed and recovering from infection.. sore.. and had some dry cuts on it... could vaginal fluid have infected me with hiv assuming she was positive. What is my real hiv risk. This was my only sexual exposure.
Also, both my toenails show a slow regression in the line where the nail is attached to the nail bed. Lastly, about a month ago the ring fingers in both my hands show fine pitting, 5-6 pits per nail, needle head size. I saw a dermatologist that without any lab tests prescribed me with itraconazole. After one session of the drug (200mg Twice a day for one week) now I'm one week before starting the next dose and there is absolutely no change.
The index finger is burned on the area near the nail bed including the nail itself, the burn is isolated to the right side of the nail and finger. My question being what will a Doctor do to ease my pain and help the healing process? I am worried being a college student with no medical coverage, that they will simply ask me to keep the wound clean, and give me pain medication, things I can do myself without accruing debt.
They are loose almost down to the nail bed and have a mucus-like discharge under them. Is there anything at all I can do to help this? Thank you.
My big toe nails became really thick and clawed and were getting infections under the nail so I had them removed and the nail bed destroyed to prevent further infections. I have read of cases where people developed thyroid problems along with YNS. I suddenly developed hypothyroidism in August 2010 but didn’t link it until recently.
this case called paronchia = infection of the nail corner by a fungus the usually reccur to the same finger or other finger in tip may be or the corners may be but usually either after nail cut or cosmotic manipulation to the finger nail specially in cosmotic centers with mixed finger nail tools or rough manipulation in daily life.

Hello, The symptoms are suggestive of fungal infection of the finger as well as nail. In onychomycosis(nail fungal infection) nail plate can have a thickened, yellow, or cloudy appearance. The nails can become rough and crumbly, or can separate from the nail bed. There is usually no pain or other bodily symptoms, unless the disease is severe. To prevent it wear gloves while working on people having fungal nail infections and do not share hand towels with them.
If I had to guess, I'd say your foot is hammer-toeing against the top of the shoe, and it's damaged the nail bed. If your foot's numb, then you won't notice the pain or bruising. When I used to run all the time, I had a pair of shoes that were the world's worst at causing that. Once I wore them without socks, and when I took my shoes off, the nail that you describe was black and red. Then it fell off about four days later.
He said it was osteo-arthritis evev when I kept telling him my finger nail was sore and I thought there was infection under the nail.

Hello and hope you are doing well. It could be a nail bed infection, also known as paronychia. If left untreated it can progress to a more severe infection of the entire finger. If an abscess has formed it needs to be drained and you will be given antibiotics for the infection. You may need to consult your primary care physician who will examine you and initiate appropriate therapy. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
You didn't state if the pus comes out from the nail bed, but if it is, its probably a cuticle infection you have got. You need to use hydrogen peroxide, which decimates the germs. You could use alcohol, even though it burns. You could make a dressing, so that there is less exposure to water, and germs. Make sure you change the dressings at least twice a day, and allow some air to blow on it for some time. Then, you could use cuticle creams subsequently to massage your cuticle.

Now on both of my fingers, about half of the nail is missing and there is only nail bed. I have been looking for nail to start growing on the missing portions where the infection had been, but nothing appears to have grown and it has been three months! The funny thing is that part of my nail seems healthy, the other half (the half where the infection was) is just absent and there is nothing growing from where the cuticle would be.
