Hello Kent, thank you or your question
Clavus is the medical term for fish eye, which is a thickening of the skin that is triggered by repeated pressing or friction. This condition is most commonly found on the soles of the feet with the following appearance:
a round shape has a hardened middle part that looks reddish indicating inflammation of the skin accompanied by pain when pressed, for example when walking. Fish eye diagnosis is generally sufficient through direct physical examination by a doctor. Additional examinations, such as X-rays, are needed to establish the underlying medical conditions of the fish eye, especially recurrent fish eyes, such as hammertoe and bunions. Handling fish eyes can be with drugs or special medical procedures, such as thinning the skin layer to surgery.
There are a variety of over-the-counter fish eye medications that generally aim to soften and remove dead cultured cells. After applying the cream or ointment to the affected area of the skin, you can cover the area with sterile gauze and bandage. During the healing period, it is recommended that you:
use shoes that are suitable and comfortable when needed, to avoid excessive friction or you can use socks, stop smoking, use a moisturizing cream specifically intended for feet. Hopefully this information is useful.
