Nail abnormalities
Fingernail or toenail abnormalities can tell you a lot about your health. They're often a sign of a fungal nail infection or injury, but can sometimes indicate a more serious underlying disease. Visit your GP if your nails have changed in colour, texture, shape or thickness and you don't know why (you haven't injured your nails or been biting them).
Hand tendon repair
If any of the tendons in your hand are damaged, surgery may be needed to repair them and help restore movement in the affected fingers or thumb.
Hand pain
Hand pain can be caused by anything from a trapped nerve to an underlying disease such as arthritis. If the pain persists even after resting your hand and taking painkillers, or if you have other symptoms and are uncertain of the cause, see your GP.
Gangrene is a serious condition in which a loss of blood supply causes body tissue to die. It can affect any part of the body but typically starts in the toes, feet, fingers and hands. Gangrene can occur as a result of an injury, infection or a long-term condition affecting blood circulation.
Fungal nail infection
A fungal nail infection affects the hard material (keratin) that makes up the nails. Fungal nail infections can affect part or all of the nail, including the nail plate, nail bed and root of the nail.
Mallet finger
Mallet finger is an injury to the end of the finger that causes it to bend in the direction of the palm. You won't be able to straighten the end of the finger because the tendon connecting the muscle to the finger bone is stretched or torn. The finger will also be painful and swollen. Sometimes a small fragment of bone breaks off with the tendon.
Dupuytren's contracture
Dupuytren’s contracture (Dupuytren's disease) is a condition that affects the hands and fingers. It causes one or more fingers to bend into the palm of the hand. It can affect one or both hands, and sometimes affect the thumb.
