Can Overcome The Eye Of The Fish Without Surgery?
Hello doctor. Permission to ask, the sole of my foot has been exposed to a fish’s eye for almost 4 months, for the fish eye has come off but the roots are still there. My question is whether I can remove the root of a fish’s eye without having to have surgery? Thank you
Thank you for using the HealthReplies.com consulting service.
The eye of the fish or clavus is one of the disorders that is often found in the soles of the feet or hands due to excessive pressure. The eye of the fish is caused by repetitive pressure on the leg area. It was also mentioned that the HPV virus (human papilloma virus) which can also cause the disease.
Until now there has been no drug that can eliminate the fish's eye to its roots.
Fish eye can be removed with a small surgical procedure or with drugs to suppress its growth. Minor surgical procedures performed for fish eyes generally have a high cure rate. This operation is performed under local anesthesia in a short time.
Related to your complaint, if the fish's eye has been lifted and leaving a thickened skin, you can give a special ointment for the fish's eye which can help reduce skin thickening. In addition, soak in warm water 5-10 minutes while rubbing it gently and carefully. Use comfortable footwear to prevent recurring symptoms.
Consult further with your doctor if complaints become more severe or there is a possibility of recurrent infections in the soles of your feet. So much information that I can convey, hopefully it helps
