O hiponíquio


This is the nail seal under the free edge of the nail plate at the distal edge of the finger. It forms a very tight seal that prevents bacteria and pathogens from entering the delicate and sensitive areas of the nail unit. There are many nerve endings within the hyponychium to act as a warning …

The cuticle is created by the eponychium on the ventral (on underside) surface of the proximal nail fold.  The cuticle is formed of sticky dead skin cells that are shed by the living skin of the PNF just like the skin cells are from any surface of epidermis but instead of falling off in flakes, …

Cutícula LEIA MAIS


The eponychium is an area of specialised skin cells on the ventral side of the proximal nail fold that produce the cuticle. Living skin underneath the proximal nail fold, is a thin layer that stretches from the nail matrix almost up to the frame of keratinised epidermis at the edge of the proximal nail fold …
