Severe cantengan is inflammation of the skin around the nails of the hands and feet. The causes vary, ranging from bacterial infections (Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus pyogenes, Pseudomonas, etc.), viruses (Herpes simplex), to yeast (Candida albicans).

Bacteria, viruses, or yeast can enter between your nails when you have an injury, for example after you cut your nails (including manicure / pedicure) improperly. This condition may also occur in those of you who have the habit of biting the tips of the nails or the skin around the nails or in children who often suck their thumbs.

The cantilever is badcan also arise because of the ingrown nail piercing the skin (ingrown toenails) and installation of artificial nails are not appropriate. Use of certain drugs, such as oral retinoids can also lead to this infection.

Signs of severe ingress

The emergence of a sharp pain around the nail that comes suddenly can be the first symptom of you having severe anxiousness. In addition, you may also experience other symptoms, such as:

The skin around the nail becomes red and painful

There is a pocket of pus around the nail

Shape, colour, or nail texture changes

If it is very severe, the nails can come off the skin.

Severe anemia can appear suddenly (acute), but it can also develop slowly (chronic). The pain in acute ferns is usually intense, occurs suddenly, and only on one nail. Meanwhile, chronic pain in the fern is not as painful as an acute cantengan. However, you may also find the cuticles (the thin skin at the base of the nails) peeling off, the nails feeling flaccid or bumpy, and occurring on several fingernails at once.

How to treat severe cantengan

Treatment of severe cantengan will depend on the level of infection, the cause, and the type of acute or chronic cantengan you have. When the fern is not severe (for example, there are no pus pockets), you can simply soak the affected finger in warm water 3-4 times a day. However, in severe cases of ingress, it may not be effective anymore. Therefore, you can take medications such as:

Use a topical antibiotic if severe cantengan is caused by a bacterial infection.

Using antifungal drugs, if your severe cantengan is caused by a yeast infection.

If pus pockets have formed on your hook, your doctor may clean them first before applying the medication in question. This pus cleansing can be done by first injecting a local anesthetic, then cutting your skin so that all the pus can come out. If your severe cantengan is chronic, your treatment may take weeks or even months. During the treatment period, it is very important for you to keep your nails clean and to keep them dry and hygienic.
