I had paronychia on my thumb Doctor gave me klavox & cream Pus and blood came out but is now stuck on my thumb and like a blister Very painful to touch it How do I clean it
Chronic paronychia — This is an infection that usually develops slowly, causing gradual swelling, tenderness and redness of the skin around the nails. It usually is caused by Candida or other species of yeast (fungus). It often affects several fingers on the same hand.
KLAVOX is a formulation of amoxycillin, a bacteri- cidal broad spectrum penicillin, and potassium cla- vulanate, a progressive and irreversible inhibitor of β-lactamase enzymes.
Paronychia is a fungal infection while you are applying Klavox, which is antibacterial. Basically you are using wrong cream. We suggest you to use CANDID B cream, which is anti fungal. Also avoid sugary food and fermented food products. Don’t keep the area moist.
