Hi am a cricketer from mumbai. I got hit by direct ball on my right leg on my nails. Its painful. What to do?

1 Doctor Answered
Finger tip injuries in cricket are common and nothing to worry about. Finger tips and nails are very sensitive and hence pain is expected. It may last for 2 to 3 weeks. Apply ice compression and keep the hand elevated. Please take anti inflammatory tablets for 5 days.
