Strange Things That Are Under Your Fingernails

August 18, 2019


Hey Badger Buddies, here are the 10 weirdest
things that get under your fingernails. Ugh smell my finger
Number 11 First stop for this train ride is brown town. Infect thus deep seas Specialist Chris Van
Tullekan ran a study in 2016 testing the hands of 50 random people across London. What he found was that 30% of people had seagull
mater under their fingernails. The primary culprit for this abhorrently high
number is the way that we clean ourselves in the bathroom. Toy let paper is a manual technology that
requires a hands on method for clean up. And if that stuff rips, you’re spit out
of luck. Number 10 Pus-Filled Blisters
Yup, it’s just as stomach-churning as it sounds. Blisters filled with pus may appear under
or around the nail as a by-product of a disease called paronychia. They’re usually accompanied by swelling,
redness and rain. Paronychia is typically the result of a bacterial
inflection caused, among others, by trauma to the cuticle or nail fold. It can come from picking at a hangnail, nail
biting, ingrown nails or injuries associated with splinters and thorns. Fortunately, a swift round of antibiotics
usually gets rid of paronychia. Pop Quiz Hot Shot! What is the best way to make sure that your
hands are clear of bacteria? See if you can guess the correct answer in
the comments below and stay tuned for the answer later in the video. Number 9 Fungi
Nail fungus is a common occurrence among people of all ages. It’s a condition known by the tongue-twisting
name of onychomycosis, which starts as a yellow or white spot beneath the nail. Statistically, it accounts for more than half
of all nail deep sees us. As the condition progresses, the nails may
become thicker, brittle and gain a yellowish color. Their shape can become distorted and they
may start to give off a slightly foul smell. Onychomycosis, in mild forms, isn’t that
ranger her us and is generally more common with toenails than fingernails. That being said, even the verbal association
of fingernails and fungus is enough to make most people queasy. Number 8 Earwax
That’s right! Earwax, one of our most mist gust sing Lee
bodily secretions sometimes finds its way under the fingernails as well. There’s no point in acting coy, we all know
how it gets there. Cleaning the inside of the ear by way of the
finger might be super tempting but it’s a terrible idea. That’s mainly because it can be dangerous
for the ear canals. The risk for injury is higher with sharper
nails, since some medical professionals don’t even recommend using traditional cotton swabs. What we know as earwax is actually called
cerumen, a substance secreted in the ear canal that protects it from foreign elements such
as insects, bacteria or fungi. Its main components are keratin, from layers
of shed skin, and fad see act lids. While earwax under the fingernails is bad
enough there’s usually a whole ritual of extraction, complete with twists, shakes and
struggling faces, which is also quite unappealing. Number 7 Mucus
Nose-picking is another common practice that’s usually frowned upon. There are also certain risks associated with
it, aside from getting odd looks and ending up with snot under the fingernails. One would be nose seeds caused by sharp nails
rupturing mud vessels on the nasal wall. Another risk is introducing bacteria in the
nose flora, through dirty nails or fingers, which may cause illness or inflection. If the person in question has a cold or another
type of virus, nose-picking increases the risk of transmission to other people through
hand contact. However, there’s a particularly mist gust
sing twist to this practice. You might want to hold on to your lunch for
this one! Some doctors argue that the practice of mucophagy,
also known as eating the extracted mucus, is beneficial for the body. The mixture of antiseptic enzymes that it
contains offers a boost to the immune system, by basically training the body’s defenses. I think I’ll skip that workout, thank you! Number 6 Mud
Put your magnifying glass away! This doesn’t have anything to do with forensics
or tracking down an elusive rim him all. Mud usually gathers under the fingernail as
a result of trauma, such as getting your finger caught in a door or accidentally hitting it
with a heavy object. It’s known as a subungual hematoma and one
of its symptoms is the nail getting a dark coloration, with shades of blackish purple,
brown or red. The other and arguably more important symptom
is an intense, throbbing rain. This is caused by the pressure of blood that’s
gathering between the nail bed and the fingernail. In case the pain’s too much to bear, doctors
can perform a type of decompression called trephination. It’s one of those rare situations where
the treatment sounds more rain full than the injury. Trephination involves using a heated wire
or carbon laser to make holes in the nail and relieve the pressure. It might sound like sort sure but it’s actually
a quick and rain less procedure. If the nail bed isn’t damaged, the nail
will fall off on its own as it gradually separates from it. A couple of months later you’ll be the proud
owner of a brand new fingernail. Number 5
As the largest bodily organ, the skin goes through a continuous process of change and
regeneration. About a month from now, your skin will be
entirely new. That’s usually how long it takes for new
skin cells to make their way to the top skin layer, also known as the epidermis. Once they get there, they try and break away,
making room for then new ones growing from below. So, where do the bed skin cells go, you might
ask? It’s simple, just check your fingernails! In a full day, human beings shed about one
million skin cells. Every time you scratch any part of your body,
you’re essentially scooping up some of them. It’s one of the reasons why our nails sometimes
look so discolored. Number 4 Nail-Tooth Connection
It wouldn’t be a stretch to say that a tooth often gets under a nail as well, usually with
the purpose of chomping bits of it off. Aside from the social stigma it carries, nail
biting can be ranger us for all the body parts involved. It can damage the teeth and gums as well as
the finger and nails. Years of biting may lead to damage of the
nail bed and severely deformed nails. Breaking the skin of the cuticle makes the
nail more susceptible to inflection. A wide variety of microbes may live under
the fingernail, which are thus transmitted to the mouth. Chronic nail biting, known as onychophagia,
is sometimes the consequence of certain mental disorders, such as OCD. In these cases, consulting a doctor or a mental
health provider is usually the best course of action. Yet, for the common nail-biting enthusiast
there are simpler remedies. One cheap and effective method is applying
a clear, bitter-tasting nail polish which, in time, discourages the habit. Number 3 Pseudomonas aeruginosa
Now it’s time to go over some hill hands of the seedy world that lie beneath your fingernails. One of them is a bacterium called Pseudomonas
aeruginosa. It can cause chloronychia, also known as green
nail syndrome. Your nail gets greenish color, but the condition
is normally treatable. Nevertheless, in more severe inflections,
Pseudomonas aeruginosa has remarkable antibiotic resistance mechanisms. It’s particularly effective in inflecting
people that already have reduced immunity or damaged tissue. It thrives in moist environments, which is
why it’s commonly found in and on medical equipment. However, CDC studies carried out in medical
facilities have also discovered its presence underneath nails, particularly artificial
ones. Once it finds its way to a hospital or clinic,
Pseudomonas aeruginosa can cause extremely rangerus cross-infections. Number 2 Staphylococcus Aureus
This is another upper-echelon member of the under-nail baddies. Staphylococcus aureus is present in 20 to
30 percent of the population, usually without doing them any harm. Yet, this bacterium can also become an opportunistic
pathogen causing a vast number of deep seas is. Staph infections range from pimples, boils
and rashes to potentially ray tall deep seas is s such as meningitis, sepsis, pneumonia
or osteomyelitis. In the US alone, about 50,000 people lose
their lives, each year, due to Staph inflections. The scariest aspect is that there’s no back
seen for Staphylococcus aureus and some strains have even developed resistance to antibiotics. A study carried out among healthcare workers
has discovered that those with acrylic nails are most at risk for harboring the bacteria. Even after washing their hands with antibacterial
soap, the bacterium was still present in significant amounts. Its Answer time! According to Dr. Chris Van Tullekan, the best
way to rid your hands of bacteria is to wash them with soap and water and rub vigorously
for as long as it takes to sing the happy birthday song twice. Number 1 E. Coli
Before you get too alarmed about a rang of E. Coli living under your fingernails, you
should now that harmless strains are already present in your gut. E. Coli is found among the normal microbes
of the human body, where it develops a symbiotic relationship. It can help the host organism by producing
vitamin K2 and preventing more ranger us bacteria from forming colonies in the intestine. However, there are also pathogenic, deep sees
causing types of E. Coli, which usually develop outside of the human body. These strains may also end up under your fingernails,
if you don’t wash your hands properly. They are then commonly introduced in the body
through habitual nail-biting. It’s worth mentioning that some of these
E. Coli strains are known to cause serious food toy son sing and even life thread in
sing conditions. They’ve been the reason behind the recall
of numerous commercial food products. So, to avoid a visit from the more dangerous
members of the E. Coli family, make sure to maintain proper hand and fingernail hygiene! Thanks for watching! What’s the weirdest thing YOU ever got under
