Will my finger nail keep swelling and have sticky substance ?
I crushed the matrix in a finger nail about a year ago, the nail has always had a median nail dystrophy but now the matrix area swells and bursts with a clear sticky lymphatic-like fluid about every three weeks. Am I to just live wth this from now on?
Hi, From history it seems that you might be having chronic nail bed infection giving this problem since long. Go for one antibiotic medicine course for one week. Clean the part with antiseptic lotion and go for proper dressing with antibiotic cream. Ok and take care.
