I have a tiny splinter in my index finger from a thorn. Skin has grown over. Slightly red and swollen but not painful. What should I do?

My index finger looks swollen and the nail does not look smooth, it also seems to grow slower I was wondering what it was and if it could be treated.
sure you didn't injure the nail bed????
Trauma is the main cause for what you describe .
On occasion, (rarely) nail fungus affects only one fingernail so try an OTC (Pharmacy) anti-fungal liquid. If no improvement..a consultation with a DERMATOLOGIST is the best source of expertise!
Hope this helps!
