A Lump Appears In The Former Fish Eye Area That Hurts When Pressed?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified beforehand, what plaster do you use? What is the content of the plaster? Have you ever had a history of allergies to certain drugs or substances?
Small painful and hard lumps in the leg area can indeed be caused by the clavus (fish's eye). This condition arises due to excessive friction in the skin, which triggers the deposition of keratin which often becomes inflamed. Several factors, such as the habit of wearing shoes that are too tight, high heels, not wearing footwear, or also having a deformity in the shape of the foot (such as a hammertoe or bunion) can also increase a person's risk of developing fisheye.
Besides fisheye, several other conditions can also cause small hard and painful lumps to appear on the toes, such as folliculitis, warts, herpes zoster, neuroma, fibroxanthoma, tinea pedis, gouty arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and so on. Each of these conditions certainly has a different treatment with the eye of the fish. Therefore, it is necessary to identify the cause of the lump you are experiencing before determining the right treatment.
The appearance of a red rash, accompanied by lumps and pain at the site where you put the eye patch on, may be due to your previous skin condition that hasn't fully healed. This complaint can also arise due to skin inflammation due to direct contact with allergy-triggering or irritating substances, in this case the fish eye patch that you use. In the medical realm, this inflammation is known as allergic or irritant contact dermatitis.
You should check your complaint directly to the doctor so that the right treatment can be done according to your condition. Subsequent treatment can be done by administering topical medications or possibly excision of the lump through a minor surgical procedure.
In the meantime, avoid forcefully peeling, squeezing, or applying anything to rashes and bumps that appear without a doctor's order. Always keep your feet clean by regularly washing your feet and then using comfortable footwear, which is not too narrow, not too high, has comfortable cushioning, and is accompanied by the use of clean socks.
Hope it helps ya..
