Hello doc wants to ask,

1 Answer:

Hello Yonathan,


Thank you for the question.

The eye of a fish (clavus) occurs when the skin is thickened and hardened with an inflamed middle side, due to being scraped or excessively pressed. Although often not dangerous, the eyes of the fish can clearly interfere with the activities of sufferers, because it can trigger pain and swelling and is very great.


Fish eye that is small in size, not infrequently it will improve enough by being given drugs, including anti-inflammatory drugs, pain relievers, also antibiotics if an infection is suspected, as the doctor gave you. Conversely, large-sized fish eyes, especially those that cause symptoms of severe inflammation, are often not enough to be treated only by being given medication, but also must be surgically removed.


The most entitled to determine what is the right treatment for the eye of the fish that you suffer, surely the doctor who examined you directly. It is also important to understand, that today's COVID-19 pandemic requires everyone to be vigilant, and the doctor is no exception. Therefore, doctors also have the right to postpone or refuse medical treatment on their patients if it is deemed not emergency, if it is not equipped with adequate PPE (personal protective equipment).


Therefore, related to your condition, you better consult directly with the doctor who examined you, yes. When in doubt, do not hesitate to ask for a second opinion to the doctor, surgeon, or other dermatologist.


I hope this helps.
