It started in May 2021, probably because I was wearing military training boots for military training, such as running and kicking, plus the toe of the shoe is relatively hard, sometimes the toe will dislike up.At first it was red, I didn't care much but after several months I haven't seen any improvement and there seems to be a gap between the nail and the flesh.Please see the photos for details. I hope a doctor can give some answers and advice on how to deal with it.
It is recommended that you wear loose, comfortable and breathable footwear, apply iodophor solution and erythromycin ointment locally, and take oral anti-inflammatory drugs to relieve the pain.
In this case, it is considered that when the military training, wearing shoes may be tight, or the amount of exercise is relatively large, and the toe of the shoe is relatively hard when kicking, this situation caused by nail bruising, he can generally be their own fading, will grow out with the nail, do not need special treatment.
These changes in the toenail can take longer to recover on its own because it is at the end of the limb. Usually, if you eat more vegetables and fruits, don't stay up late, and supplement with high quality protein and calcium, you can wait to recover on your own, or you can go to a public hospital surgical clinic to have your nail trimmed.
