Will nail fungus be all over my bed sheets,etc My ob doc say I have nail fungus But the ER doc. Says it might not be because I slammed finger w/ door

Will nail fungus be all over my bed sheets,etc My ob doc say I have nail fungus But the ER doc. Says it might not be because I slammed finger w/ door

Both could be right.: Trauma to the nail root can either temporarily or permanently cause a distortion of the nail plate. This distortion can often mimic a fungal nail infection. Having a fingernail that has a fungal infection is not as common as a toenail, especially on a 23 year old. You can settle the dilemma by having the nail tested for fungal spores. ...Read more

Trapped finger in a door earlier, what do I do?

Trapped finger in a door earlier, what do I do?

Plan to x-ray : If there is no obvious deformity/ severe bleeding then start with rest, ice, compression, & elevation. You may splint the area, and take an otc antiinflammatory/ pain reliever if you don't have any contraindicated medical conditions. You should plan to have an x-ray in the next few days to make sure there are no fractures that will heal incorrectly. If there is obvious deformity = urgent care. ...Read more

Splint or buddy tape: Try splinting your injured finger or even buddy taping it. Then wrap it up so don't poke yourself while asleep. I have no connection to Walgreens but their ad popped up when I searched: http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/walgreens-small-finger-splint/ID=prod3460871-product. You could also use popsicle sticks.

If you slam your finger in a door and your nail falls off how long will it take till the new one grows?

If you slam your finger in a door and your nail falls off how long will it take till the new one grows?

Trauma: If you're lucky enough to still have some living matrix at the end of the finger, and most times this occurs you definitely are that lucky, the nail should grow back in a matter of many months. It just takes a long time because that nail, once established, only grows 2 mm a month on the fingers and 1 mm a month on the toes. ...Read more
