Fingernail broken

Common Questions and Answers about Fingernail broken

nail

It's on his left forefinger, on the skin edging the top of his fingernail. It looks like it could be a wart, but is painful. He has tried doing all sorts of (horrendously inappropriate) things to it - like freezing it off, sandpapering it, and cutting what seems to be a growth of dead skin, to no avail. Our local GP has been less than helpful, attributing it to "something foreign under the skin", and doing nothing about it.
Hi Doc, I would appreciate your expert advice regarding any HIV risk from a fingernail scratch from a stripper in this case ... I recently went to a strip club and went for a private dance with one of the girls.  During the dance the girl was playing with herself a bit and had her hands down around her vagina area some times (as many dancers do).  But at one point she playfully scratched me on the arm with her fingernails.
The lubricant used was vasoline and I frequently have cuticle tears/cuticle breaks where the fingernail is attached to the finger. I do not remember if any were sore at the time and I don't remember any bleeding/injury to them but I cannot say for sure. It's been about a week now since exposure and I've been having lethargy, headaches, and I have a very mild rash on my shoulder blade that I cannot figure out is related to ARS. That's neither here nor there.
I have three pins in my little finger, three pins in my ring finger, my middle finger is broken also but didn't require pins. They are all broken diagonoly in the first bone right above the knuckle. I'm in a cast to my finger tips down past my wrist. I have the pins removed in a week. I am scared that it is going to take me forever to get movement back in my hand after. If a little finger injury takes so long to recover...am I looking at double or triple the time??eeekkee.
A common problem with caring for the elderly is a torn fingernail. I would think this would be a no-brainer, but a visiting nurse recently showed up at the home of a 100 year old I know, and instead of repairing the fingernail as I suggested (I had superglue gell in a drawer with a note), tore it (the fingernail fragment) off (yes there was blood) and put a bandage on the finger with bacitracin. Arghhh! They apparently give R.N.'s these days by sending in boxtops.
I get little red dots all over my arms afterwards which are probably broken blood vessles, and sometimes bruising from the scratching. It is so intense. I have found that if I take 3-4 advil prior to going to bed, the itch lessens to the point where I can ususally go to sleep. I dont understand this and wish someone had an answer.
Greetings, About two days ago I went to a spa and massage center, I was massaged for an hour by a therapist who seemed to have a cold. I think I got scratched by her fingernail on my back and on my buttocks, I'm afraid of what I might have caught from that scratch. I did not notice any bleeding or broken skin whatsoever I think but the area was red for a few hours, it did not hurt as well, but worried just the same in case the nail broke my skin and may have caused a slight or deep scratch.
Lately, I have had some deep itches on my face and I have scratched them with my finger nail or held my fingernail on the itches for a few seconds to relieve the itch as it itches so bad, and after I am done holding my fingernail on the itches or scratching them with my fingernail, it has left little red lines on my face. I think they are broken blood vessels. They still itch and I try not to scratch them. When other parts of my face itch, I try to rub it with my finger, not my nail.
A couple days ago I was holding my 1 year-old nephew and he scratched my chin with his fingernail. I didn't think the skin was broken so I didn't think about it. The next morning I noticed some dried blood on my chin. Is there any chance I've put my nephew at any risk?
It could be anything from a broken blood vessel (which is pretty much a hickey) or an STD. Any type of trauma to the penis can cause blood vessels to break. Is it tender to the touch? Does it feel warm? If so, it's probably a blood vessel broken. It could have been caused by a number of things, your fingernail digging into his penis, him pushing too hard...ect...I wouldn't worry. But yes, a hickey can show up anywhere where there are blood vessels...pretty much your entire body.
It's almost at the corner (facing my nose) where the grouping of blood vessels are, so I'm assuming that it IS a blood vessel that somehow broke, or became irritated by my contacts...or maybe I just scratched myself with my fingernail? I don't feel any pain or have any change in my vision (no blurred vision, etc.) but it's still there.
I recently visited an escort for the first time and afterwards I told my girlfriend about it. We decided to put it behind us and agreed that we wouldn't have sex until I got tested at the 3 month mark. However, the other night, we engaged in mutual masturbation and I fingered her for a few minutes. The problem is that I suffer from eczema and the finger that I was using on my girlfriend had a tiny "weeping" wound just above my fingernail.
I broke off my front tooth, which had been broken and capped 30 years ago. The dentist decided that a root canal should be done and a post inserted in the canal. I was given a flapper. I went to separate dentist 2 weeks later who created a post for the crown and then put on a crown. That was a month ago. At first the tooth felt a little funny, but I hoped it would go away. Now the pain is a little more constant, but not intense. It hurts when i tap my fingernail on my tooth.
Although this forum seems to be the most knowledgeable and least scarey of all sites, it too is/was in my head making a diagnosis without seeing a Dr. Fever Chills Karposi whatever Other skin rashes Swollen glands Cotton mouth Oral lesions Fingernail deformations You name it, if it was mentioned with HIV in the same sentence, psychologically my body started to develop those exact symptoms. Today I had had enough.
A subungual hematoma is caused by collection of blood (hematoma) underneath a toenail or fingernail. Keep the hand elevated and apply cold compresses by wrapping ice cubes in a towel. Please ensure not to apply ice directly without any cloth. Also take some anti inflammatory medicine like Ibuprofen or Diclofenac if you have taken them prior to this injury and have not shown any allergic reaction to them.
My husband examined it to see if there seemed to be a broken bone, but he thought not. As the morning went on, he appeared to be in a good deal of pain and just wanted to be held. By the afternoon, the swelling had increased to over halfway down his finger. We wondered if he had had a spider bite in the night, but could not find any bite or puncture marks, or any broken skin whatsoever.
It's the same problem, but perhaps explained a little better and with different questions than last time. (Probably not new-thread worthy, so I'll apologize in advance.
My boyfriend is HIV positive. For the last two months, we have not had anal or oral sex. When we partake in mutual masturbation, I may begin, but he always finishes himself. The reason for this is because I have dry cracked cuticles that I usually bite. Sometimes they bleed, other times the skin just becomes raw.
she was tapering down but then had an accident and broke a toe or two. i have broken both my little toes...MANY TIMES...and i don't even think about treating my pain with pain pills...i just go for the tylenol...aleve...motrin...whatever is available. i know...because of the fact that you guys have abused pills for a while that tylenol and the likes, probably don't phase you...but what about once you have significant clean time?
Also when she was removing the condom she pinched the base of my penis with her fingernail grabbing at the base of the condom.On inspection the next morning could not see any broken skin.When I left her apartment I was already feeeling guilty and terrified and asked her if she had Aids and she said she was clean, but how would you know? My problem is that I am happily married with two kids and that this was totally out of character for me,i don't know how it happened.
I have been under extreme stress this year (finishing a PhD, moving cross country with my family, two toddlers, wife with a broken foot). I also have a history of back and neck problems, and generally take one 200mg ibuprofen at bed time. In the two weeks prior to the a.fib, I had switched to taking one Alleve tablet because it lasts longer. During this time I started having the heart palpitations two or more times a week. The "trigger" on the whole a.
They don't hurt or itch or anything. Sometimes I poke and scratch them with my fingernail and then they will be sore of course. However, I have this one bump that is right inside the top of my buttcrack...Where the top of the cheeks meet...I noticed it just by checking things out one day and then I began touching it and such (and I still touch it numerous times a day just to see what's going on)...It is still a little sore...It is small in the morning, but by evening it's a bit larger.
Hi, I'm a tattoo artist and tonight I accidentally broke the top layer of skin in between my fingernail and knuckle while tattooing. I wear gloves of course when tattooing and originally thought it didn't break through the glove,just felt a slight vibration from the needles. Later on when washing my hands upon careful inspection, I realized the skin was slightly broken. Their didn't seem to be any bleeding, however im still really scared that I could have contracted hiv or hep c.
No,not at all.It would make no difference if you had cuts or broken skin because the HIV virus is so fragile outside the body.It becomes inactive and unable to infect.
I didn't notice any bleeding afterwards, but I think the skin on the nipples did become broken, because the next day I noticed a large amount of scabbing on my nipples. -She also used metal fingernail extensions to pinch my nipples very hard. -While wearing lace panties, she sat on my face for long periods of time. -She massaged my penis without a condom. -She rubbed her bare breasts on my face. My mouth may have been open and may have sucked her breast at some points.
Not every girl is born with one and sometimes it is broken due to intense physical activity. However, it is not likely that it's broken by a finger. It can stretch, so a finger won't break it. A hymen is not a proof of virginity, some hymens are very elastic and can strech during intercourse and then they come back to ther original place. Virginity is a rather debatable concept that people define in different ways.
Thanks...(FYI...no sex involved at all) This will seem odd but my fingernail cuticles often have broken or cracked areas. There's no blood visible at all but the natural barrier of skin is compromised.
She is stealing from us, lying about it and when we find out our heart is broken and it is so hard to talk to her about it because she makes us feel bad by saying "...because of the stoke..." and I end up crying and forgiving her. I love my mom and want to support her and do support her, but we need help and I just don't know what to do anymore. Any input into this would be so greatly appreciated!
I drove the 25 miles to yoga with ice on my thumb, the darn thing throbbing something fierce. Considered turning around an going home, but I did yoga last week with a broken toe. The instructor spoke about doing things (like the asanas in class) with intention. To intend to hold a pose. I was intent on doing the poses without hurting my toe or thumb, and it was an even more focused class that I'd experienced before; way cool!
