Abstract: Paronychia is an inflammation of the folds of tissue surrounding the nails of a toe or a finger. Women are 3 times more prone to men as they are more exposed to water and irritants. Paronychia can be classified as either acute or chronic. The main factor associated with acute Paronychia is direct or indirect trauma to the cuticle or nail folds whereas frequent exposure to the water, chemical and irritants are responsible for chronic Paronychia. Homeopathy as a system of medicine can play a major role in controlling and curing Paronychia, if the history is recorded and physical examination is done appropriately can minimize the need of surgery as well .
