Chronic paronychia is caused by a mixture of yeasts (candida, herpes simplex and bacteria Staphylococcus aureus). It is most common in people who often have their hands in water, detergents or chemicals, have poor circulation (cold hands and feet) or diabetes. Women get chronic paronychia more often than men.. ** Avoiding irritants and excessive water exposure. **Topical corticosteroids or tacrolimus. **Sometimes intralesional corticosteroids and antifungal drugs. **For severe or refractory disease, surgery.

Thank you doctor
