Good Morning, I'm experiencing intermittent numbness in my right pointer finger at the tip. The nail bed becomes pale & lasts under 5 min. Thx?
Numbness=perception&: Complex with many possible reasons. However, pale vs. Pink nail bed always=result of color of red blood cells in capillaries close enough to surface to see. So if nail bed becomes pale (without outside mechanical pressure to oppose blood flow) this clearly represents a change in blood flow to capillaries in the nail bed, e.g. advanced arterial disease, Raynaud's syndrome, ↓ed O2, etc? ...Read more

I have been diagnosed with a pyrogenic granulnoma on my fingernail on my second finger is it painfull to have the nail removed from the nail bed?
Somewhat: In order to remove the nail, the surgeon will most likely perform a ring block (numbing with lidocaine). That is the most painful part of the procedure since there is a needle involved. You shouldn't feel the nail removal itself. I bet you are experiencing pain from the pyogenic granuloma, so you are going to be happy to have it removed. It takes 5-6 mos for the nail to regrow. ...Read more

If the bleeding seem to involve a larger area or the area is painful, it needs to be evacuated by a procedure known as trephination.
In the meantime, soak the area in warn water and use ibuprofen for pain. ...Read more

Avoid amputation: If you have adequate soft tissue over the bone and tendon, there would be no reason to amputate. A tip without graft will usually gradually fill in, but graft can get quicker coverage. A general rule of thumb is that if area is less than 1 cm in diameter graft not much benefit, if it is quite a bit larger than that then placing a graft on is a consideration. ...Read more
