What is Paronychia?

Description of the disease

Paronychia is an inflammatory process that occurs in the tissues of the fingers of the hands or feet. It is most often caused by a bacterial infection and can lead to serious complications if not addressed.


Paronychia can be of two types: superficial (affecting only the skin) and subcutaneous (affecting the tissues under the skin).


  • Swelling and redness of the fingers
  • Pain and tingling
  • Purulent discharge
  • Increased sensitivity


The main causes of paronychia are finger injuries, improper nail care, and poor hygiene.


The diagnosis of paronychia is based on a doctor's examination and, if necessary, laboratory analysis of secretions.


Treatment of paronychia may include antibiotics, local anti-inflammatory agents, abscess drainage, and surgical intervention.


  • Proper nail and finger skin care
  • Avoiding trauma
  • Prompt consultation with a doctor at the first signs of inflammation


Paronychia treatment is performed by a surgeon or traumatologist.
