Effect Of Fish Eye On Swollen Feet?
Hello, I want to ask if the fish eye causes the leg to become swollen or not? R nThank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fish eye (clavus) occurs due to thickened skin due to repeated friction. This condition most often occurs in the leg area, although it does not rule out it also occurs in other parts of the body. Usually, the fish's eye will produce a lump or thickened hardened skin surrounded by inflamed skin, causing pain, redness, and easy injury.
In fact, there is no direct link between the eyelets and swelling in the legs. However, the wounds that often appear on the feet due to fish eyes, if not properly cared for, can become an entry point for harmful microorganisms that are prone to causing infection. This infection can trigger inflammation, so that the legs become swollen, due to edema or a buildup of pus.
Apart from fish eyes, feet can also swell due to other causes, for example due to walking or standing too long, varicose veins, cellulitis, insect bites, contact dermatitis, filariasis, tumors, post-injury, hormonal changes (for example in pregnant women), dysfunction liver, kidney, or heart, and so on.
A direct doctor's examination is required to find out the exact cause of swelling in the feet. In some cases, further examinations can also be done, such as X-rays, laboratory tests, biopsy, and so on to find out the best treatment for swelling in the legs. Therefore, don't hesitate to see a doctor directly.
I hope this helps.
