Listen to this post:
There are many people who have the bad habit of biting their nails for one reason or another and most don’t realise how harmful it is for their body as the habit has become so ingrained in their system.
Some chronic biters go to the extreme of biting off their entire nail – God knows how they do that – which can lead to serious infections of the finger.
According to Metro, a woman from Scotland shared a story that proves why you shouldn’t bite your nails!
A nail-biter friend of hers, who refused to be identified, had to be rushed to the hospital for an emergency surgery after their finger developed an infection that started travelling up their arm!
“Someone I know who prefers to remain nameless who bites their nails ended up having to get rushed to Glasgow Royal Infirmary today for emergency surgery because they had bitten their nails down too far and had got an infection in the finger,” she said.
“This person had been to two chemists and spoken to two separate pharmacists over the past few days who had advised to use magnesium sulphate and keep it covered.”
“It still got worse and when finally went to A&E this morning was told if left much longer it could have been fatal as the infection was travelling up the arm hence the emergency surgery!”
“So please please stop biting your nails!”
Along with the post, she shared several photos of the person’s infected finger. She also shared that the nail-biter was put on an antibiotic drip after the surgery.
“Surgery done and on a drip for antibiotics for the next few days and this is how it looks now p.s minus a nail on that finger which may never grow back but on the plus side one less nail for them to bite!” she said.
Damn. If you have a bad habit of biting your nails, please try to stop as you could develop an infection like this person did.
