It most commonly occurs on the foot thumb, on one or on both sides.The patient complains on the pain and difficulty while walking. Examination may determine the swelling, redness, the appearance of granulation and pus.
Prevention: If you experience pain in the edge of nail, if you have swelling and redness, ask your doctor for advice. It’s good if you solve the problem in time, so you can avoid surgery. If you postpone your visit to a doctor, if you suffer from an occasional occurrence of symptoms, or they stop occasionally – it will come to chronic inflammation, frequent use of antibiotics and frequent absence from work. Talk to the doctor before the operation is the only medicine.
