Shahid M, Bidin N, Mat Daud Y, Inayat Ullah M., Model of acute paronychia infection by plasma water electrolysis, Onl J Vet Res., 24(11): 651-658, 2020. Acute paronychia starts as a red, warm sore swelling of skin with purulent discharge and eventual detachment of nail from epidermis. Lymph nodes in the jostle and armpit may become inflamed. The parametric dependence of this infection as a function of conductive, convective and radiative heat fluxes, irradiation time and heat diffusion through nail bed (epidermis) were evaluated using plasma electrolysis of water. Results suggest that thermal diffusion had the greatest effect in inducing acute paronychia infection. The site of conduction heat current and conduction heat flux appeared to have more of an effect than convective and radiative heat current or flux.
