Homeopathy Treatment for nail bed inflammation

Nail bed inflammation, called “panaritium” by doctors, is the most common infection that you can get on your fingers. The inflammation caused by bacteria usually begins with a slight injury, which the person affected does not even have to notice. Even small cuts or cracks can get bacteria into the nail bed and settle there. If the immune system cannot stop the pathogen in time, inflammation occurs, causing the nail bed and the surrounding skin to redden and swell. The affected area is extremely painful to the touch. 

Homeopathic remedies help heal the inflammation by reducing pain and swelling.
