Insights Into Potential Causes of Paronychia

Paronychia can be caused by several factors, with the most common being bacterial or fungal infections. Bacterial paronychia typically occurs when bacteria enter the skin around the nail through a hangnail, cut, or injury. Fungal paronychia, on the other hand, is often seen in individuals who have prolonged exposure to moist environments, such as dishwashers or swimmers. Other causes of paronychia include trauma to the nail, chronic nail biting, and certain underlying health conditions like diabetes or compromised immune system.
