What causes fingernails to bubble?
The cause of a person’s onycholysis varies widely. A person may experience an injury or repetitive trauma. Simply tapping nails repeatedly for a long time can cause the nail to separate from the skin. Injuries such as slamming a finger in a car door or stubbing a toe may also cause onycholysis.
Will subungual hematoma go away?
A minor subungual hematoma usually heals over time without treatment. The trapped blood will eventually be reabsorbed, and the dark mark will disappear. This can take 2–3 months for a fingernail, and up to 9 months for a toenail.
How do you treat Onycholysis?
What is the treatment for onycholysis?
- Clip the affected portion of the nail and keep the nail(s) short with frequent trimming.
- Minimise activities that traumatise the nail and nailbed.
- Avoid potential irritants such as nail enamel, enamel remover, solvents, and detergents.
How do you treat a lifted nail bed?
Keep the nail bed dry, clean, and covered with petroleum jelly and an adhesive bandage until the nail bed is firm or the nail has grown back. Apply a new adhesive bandage whenever the bandage gets wet. Watch for signs of infection such as increasing heat, redness, pain, tenderness, swelling, or pus.

Go slowly. If you file too fast, you’ll take off too much nail too quickly, which makes it hard to achieve a desired shape….

Pterygium is a disorder characterized by an overgrowth of the proximal nail fold onto the nail bed. Pterygium is derived from a Greek word, pterygion, which means “little wing” or “fin.” It is also referred to as wing-like. By definition, pterygium forms if there is scar tissue in the nail matrix.
How do you detect pterygium?
Common symptoms include redness, blurred vision, and eye irritation. You might also feel a burning sensation or itchiness.

What does pterygium look like?
A pterygium can usually be seen as a fleshy, pink growth on the white of the eye, and may occur in one eye or both. They occur between the eyelids, most often in the corner of the eye, close to the nose, and extend onto the cornea. Many people with a pterygium feel as if there is something in their eye.
Does Pinguecula ever go away?
Pinguecula are harmless. They usually only require eye drops and better protection to dissipate and return the eye’s appearance to normal. Some patients might experience discomfort from the growths, so they might be prescribed special contact lenses. Surgery is an option, but it is mostly done for cosmetic purposes.
What is the white bump on my eyeball?
The most noticeable symptom of a pinguecula is the white or yellow bumps on the white of the eye, closest to the nose. Although they can also appear on the part of the eye closer to the ear. Other symptoms of a pinguecula include: burning….
