Acute and Chronic Paronychia


Paronychia is the inflammation of the folds of the tissues surrounding the nail of the toe or finger. It can be classified into acute or chronic, based on the trauma to the nail fold or cuticle. There are different treatment options such as - warm compress, topical antibiotics, oral antibiotics, surgical incision and drainage for chronic cases.

Chronic paronychia is an inflammatory reaction to the nail folds to allergens.

Paronychia

Patients affected by this condition should avoid exposure to the irritants. Patients are recommended to treat the underlying inflammation and infection using a corticosteroid and topical antifungal agents.

In some patients, application of the emollient lotions and topical steroid creams is beneficial than antifungals in the treatment of chronic paronychia.

Patients with a history of diabetes may benefit from a short course of antibiotics. If the cute Paronychia is diagnosed early without obvious abscess, it can be treated non-surgically.

At Madurai Foot care center, we can treat Paronychia of the acute and chronic level after appropriate diagnosis.
