Common Questions and Answers about Finger nail hurt


Avatar f tn The skin on my middle finger at the nail seems to gave pulled back as the nail of my infected finger is about 30% longer than the nail on my other middle finger. My nail looks quite similar to in this photo: Does anyone know what I can do about this/what this is? Thanks.
Avatar f tn I been to doctors and no one can tell what it is, one thinks might be a fungus, People that has seen thinks might be. It hurt so much I feel like cutting finger off. I don't know what to do everything I try not working. Doctor gave me some pills and still nothing,Start small like hang nail but so big slip 4 ways.Is there anything you can tell me and what should I do?
Avatar f tn You are absolutely the right thing in going to see your doctor about this brown vertical line on your one finger nail, especially as it is the whole length of the nail, is getting wider and is not growing out with new nail growth. I have an idea what you found when you googled and no doubt you came across subungual melanoma. This does start off with a darkened stripe that gets wider and it only affects one nail.
Avatar n tn one thumb nail, one pointer fingernail, and one pinky nail. my thumb and pointer finger nail are really really thick. and it hurts really bad it feels like my fingers are constantly smashed. my sister has psoriasis bad on her skin but not her nails and she mentioned one day that it could be nail psoriasis so i looked it up and i think thats what it is.
Avatar m tn Hello, It can be due to paronychia which results from a breakdown of the protective barrier between the nail and the nail fold. In your case the ingrown nail could have precipitated the problem. It is diagnosed by gram staining and KOH wet mounts from the skin and nail scrapings. So I suggest you to get the gram staining and KOH wet mounts done from a dermatologist.
Avatar m tn 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?
Avatar n tn Yesterday I was on a knee board and my index finger got smashed between the rope handle and the rope holder on the knee board. My finger hurt really bad for a couple of seconds and by the time I got out of the water was very swollen. There has been very little pain, but my finger has remained swollen, bruised, tingly and a little colder at the tip than my other fingers.
Avatar m tn It is near the location where the pus was oozing and it looks like the nail is detaching from the nail bed.I haven;t seen a dr then i had put some antibiotic powder over it and in about 3 days the infection was gone. Now what has caused this yelow-brown discoloration?Is it like an effect of the infection?Should i see a doctor?Will my nail fall?
Avatar n tn Hello, A dent across the nail usually means some form or disruption of the nail growth area.It can also be due to Beau's lines that appear when growth at the area under your cuticle is interrupted.Third possibility is of psoriasis. The inflammatory skin condition,it shows up as red, scaly patches on the skin and can also affect the skin cells in the nails.
Avatar f tn On April 16th this year I was at a nail salon getting a mani and pedi and the lady working on my hands cut my index finger with cuticle clippers. It was pretty deep because it bled for a while and hurt the next day (soreness). I don't recall if she used the clippers on my feet prior to using it on my hands, but from what I recall there weren't any visible signs of dried blood before she used the clippers on me.
Avatar f tn 5 wks ago, just sore on the inner knuckle, could not find any insect bites, no injury, no hang nail. Swelling went down after several days, then it came back with a vengence with severe swelling and lots of pain but this time only in the fingertip. The pressure was so intense that I tried to drain it, I know I shouldn't have. Nothing would come out. The pain was extreme and I did hot salt water soaks several times a day which was worse than any pain I have ever experienced!
Avatar f tn Thank you that is something I will try. I'm a nail bitter who can't stop bitting and my hands hurt all the time.
Avatar m tn 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.
Avatar m tn I jammed the tip end of my ring finger. When I wiggle the nail, it seems its not connected to the joint. I can see a slight bruise near the joint on the inside of my hand. I positioned my finger and wrapped a band-aid tightly around it to hold it in place. Otherwise, my nail seems to be tilting inward towards the joint. It only hurt if I try to use that finger i.e. when typing.
Avatar f tn This was a bit of a problem last year, because I broke my toe and didn't know it. I knew it hurt, but it didn't hurt bad enough for it to be broken, so I didn't worry about it. It wasn't until the swelling went down and I couldn't really flex it properly that I realized it was broken.
Avatar n tn It got a infection which did not have pus or hurt much. The finger tip felt numb and tingly. Red spots would bleed if I put pressure on. I also seem to have got a nail fungus. Now I have a burning sensation beneath the muscle of the left bicep which makes the muscle crampy. The finger looks fine but I feel sick. Could the infection have spread? I have had the tetanus shot 2 years ago. My doctor gave me Lamisil for the nail fungus. Should I also get a round of antibiotics just to make sure?
Avatar f tn 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. It has gotten worse and now the nail is turning blue around the cuticle and I cannot straighten out the finger. What should I do or what do you think is wrong. It ALL started with the nail problem.
Avatar n tn I pulled a hang nail out of my ring finger and now it's gotten swollen and it hurts whenever I accidentally bump it. Yesterday it started to get bigger and on the side that I pulled the hang nail off it turned purple. Today it looks as if the purple is spreading. Should I go to the ER or wait?
Avatar f tn No lol it's safe just don't chew with nail polish on...nail polish just makes me want to pick and chew at my nails.
Avatar f tn hello. I have bumps on three of my fingers (both thumbs and my right index finger). I am not really sure what they are. I have had them for about 16 years, since I was 12 or so. They do not hurt but are just annoyances because I consider them unsightly. i have posted pictures of them here: I am wondering if these are removable, and if so, generally how much one could expect to pay for such a procedure. Thank you!
Avatar m tn About 2 months ago I burnt my finger tip right where the nail and fingertip meet, it started to heal like normal and then one day I hit it on a table and it started bleeding pretty heavily. Since then, a large red bubble filled with blood and tissue has been forming and coming out of the skin. I've tried popping it and only blood comes out. I've tried compressing it and within 10 minutes of taking a bandage off it pops out of the healing skin. Is this at all normal?
Avatar m tn If that was a 10 in pain the colonoscopy with out drugs would be a 4-6. Missing a nail and hitting my finger with a hammer = 9. Stubbing my toe walking barefoot = 6. Getting a tetness shot for rusted metal 3. Dentist drilling with out novacaine = 30, Don't ever chance that. Dentists can really hurt. Bad hemorriod 9. So I gave some things to compare how much pain I felt.
Avatar n tn One and a half weeks ago, I (very uncharacteristically) pulled off a hangnail that was close to my nailbed and fairly deep. Now my finger has a pronounced purplish bump on it and is very hot to the touch. In the past week, it has gotten worse (bumpier, hotter, discolored) instead of better. Also it is painful when anything puts any pressure on that part of my finger. What's going on?
Avatar f tn Last year in July I hurt my ring finger on my right hand. It was due to catching a ball which struck the finger. I had pain throughout the finger, couldn't bend the joint closest to the finger nail. Xrays were taken at the ER and they suspected a crack on top of the joint that is located above the knuckle and also to the inside of this same joint (facing the middle finger). I did see my family doctor a week later and another xray was taken.
Avatar m tn And it had gotten infected and you couldn't tell because the finger nail was in the way. The doctor ended up numbing her finger and then draining the puss. He gave her a cream to put under her nail and also told us to do finger soaks and to keep it covered when at school.or other places that have lots of germs around.
Avatar n tn I fracture under the nail in my pinky finger at the er they put me a splint and told me to go to an orthpedic so I can get a cast and know I don't know what to do can I get some advice
Avatar n tn I have used Lamisol on it for weeks (4-5) at a time and it does seem to get smaller, but then comes back again. It doesn't hurt, get bigger or affect my nail. If I pick at it, it gets sore, bleeds but then heals again. I only have it on one finger. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions I would appreciate it.
Avatar f tn I recently picked up a mountain bike to put it in the back of my truck and the seat post put a lot of pressure on the big knuckle on top of my hand that is right where the index finger connects to my hand. My finger hurt and went numb for a while and I thought nothing more of it. Then I kept noticing that if I touched this same spot my finger has a shooting sort of pain that radiates down the entire length of my finger all the way to the nail.
