WHITLOW AND INJURY TO THE NAIL
Do not try to remove any foreign body from the nail unless you can see it easily. Digging under the nail may damage the skin around it and cause an abscess under the nail — whitlow — which can be extremely painful.
If there is pus and swelling, try placing the finger in hot and ice cold water alternately, and if this does not help, apply a hot Kaolin poultice.
It is better to take nail injuries to the doctor unless simple treatment at home succeeds.
Some indicated remedies — Hepar Sulph., Hypericum, Silica.
