Can The Fish’s Eyes Spread If Not Operated?
Excuse me … I want to ask if the fisheye on the legs can spread if they are not operated on / they are raised
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Fish eye or also called clavus is thickening of the skin formed due to friction or pressure on the skin. Clavus is usually formed on the soles of the feet, toes, palms, or on the fingers that often experience friction and pressure. In clavus, inflammation occurs around the thickened / hardened skin so it often feels painful when pressed.
Because the formation of clavus is not caused by infection, the clavus will not spread to other areas and will not be contagious (contrast with warts that occur due to HPV infection).
If indeed your clavus is very annoying (for example, causing pain when you walk), you should consult your doctor so that further treatment can be done. Management can include erosion and removal of excess skin that is formed, administration of salicylic acid, administration of shoe pads (if your feet have a deformity or there is a protrusion of bones in the foot). To prevent clavus from forming in the same place after treatment and also to prevent clavus from appearing elsewhere, here are some things you can do:
use comfortable shoes and the right size for your feet use socks when wearing shoes soak your feet in warm water and scrape hardened skin areas using pumice give moisturizer to areas of thickened skin
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
