Paronychia :twisted: may be caused by repeated injury that creates swelling. It may also be caused by an infection with bacteria or yeast organisms. Swelling lifts the wall of skin underlying the nail and makes the area more prone to future infection.
Paronychia :twisted: may cause swelling, tenderness, and redness of the area around the nail. Nails may be discolored and may grow abnormally. Pus :cus: may leak from the cuticles, which are the thin layers of skin that cover the edges of a nail.
Following are some common causes of paronychia :twisted: : · repeated injury of the cuticle skin, such as in vigorous manicures · repetitive soaking of hands in water at work or at home · excessive hand washing, especially when the hands are not dried properly
Paronychia :twisted: is more common in a person who is prone to bacterial and yeast infections, such as an individual who has diabetes. Repeated bouts of paronychia are common.
Paronychia :twisted: can be minimized by avoiding prolonged soaking in water and by drying the hands well after hand washing.
The organisms :alien: that cause paronychia :twisted: are not usually passed to other people. However, the use of manicure tools that have not been sterilized can transmit the infection.
