Pulling fingers and barbed, causing bacterial infection
After the winter, the weather began to dry out. Many people began to crack the skin on the skin of the nail near the finger, forming a raised triangle barb. If it scratches the clothes or touches these thorns, it will feel pain.When you see them, you will always unconsciously want to pull them out. If you really pull them out, you will feel pain, and you will often get bloody fingers. In severe cases, skin infections may occur.
銆€銆€These “barbs” are medically called “reverse stripping” and refer to small long triangular epidermis that is lifted from the proximal or lateral edge of the nail fold and has pain.
銆€銆€The main reason for long barbs is dry skin, cracks and habitual nail biting.
Bite is a very common cause, so young people are more prone to barbs, and people will also grow barbs, more likely to be related to dry skin.
If it does not heal for a long time, it may be related to the long-term dryness of the skin caused by the lack of vitamins or trace elements.
銆€銆€This kind of “barb” is only the damage of the superficial layer of the skin. This is not enough. However, people often pull and tear the barbed. Since the structure of the nail epithelium is connected downwards and backwards, attempting to tear off will cause further tearing of the barb.The result is that the barbs tear more, and the more they tear, the deeper the skin, causing further damage to the deep layers of the skin and causing bleeding and infection.
銆€銆€The ditch at the junction of the nail and the surrounding skin is called the sulcus. Once the barb is infected, it will soon spread to the sulcus and cause paronychia, which may cause local swelling, pain and even suppuration. If it is not treated in time, it may further develop into a subabdominal abscess.Purulent fingertip inflammation, the former should be pulled, and the other should be cut open at the fingertips to get a cure.
It can be seen that the small barbs will bring much pain due to improper handling.
銆€銆€Therefore, if you find that there are barbs on your fingers, don’t tear them. The correct way is to soak the barbed hands with warm water for about 5 minutes. After the skin around the nails becomes soft, use a nail clipper or a small scissors to barb.Cut it off at the root.
銆€銆€Because dry barbs may form tiny tears in the skin during pruning, resulting in more barbs.
Since there is a chance that the infection will occur when the barb is cut off, the nail clipper or the small scissors should be disinfected with alcohol before cutting. The barbed should also be coated with iodine before being cut off and cut off.
If the barb is red or has suppuration, it is likely that an infection has occurred. It is best to go to the hospital.
銆€銆€For the prevention and prevention of barbs, parents should not let the child unconsciously bite the nails. If the skin is dry, it is necessary to apply moisturizer or vitamin E cream.
銆€銆€While moisturizing your fingers outside, you can consider supplementing vitamins A, E, C and trace elements such as zinc and selenium. Among them, you can eat carrots, cantaloupe, eggs, milk, almonds, kelp, seaweed, sea fish, green vegetables and so on.
