Fish Eye Surgery Scar Hardens?
, I want to ask. About 2 months ago the back of my big toe had a fish eye removal operation. But until now the scar has hardened and if you press it, it feels painful (sometimes it feels painful even though you don’t have anything). At first I thought that in the scar, the fish’s eye grew again. But after I went to the doctor (who initially lifted my fish eye), he said it was calluses and was given advice to change to more comfortable shoes u0026amp; was given betadine again. Now what I want to ask, is it necessary to give Callusol again so that the calluses disappear or just leave it on while routinely giving Betadine? Thanks.
Fish eye or commonly referred to as clavus is a condition where there is thickening of the skin of the feet (usually in those who often experience friction / trauma). Fish eyes can cause protrusion in the area around the soles of the feet, feel pain, hardened lumps, and in an advanced state can be accompanied by discharge of pus.
Fish eye is treated by performing a small operation to remove the fish eye. After performing fish eye surgery, it will take about 1-2 weeks for healing.
If you are currently experiencing hardened skin on your feet, it could be due to calluses or calluses. Calluses are a condition that is almost similar to a fish eye where there is a thickening of the skin layer due to repeated friction over a long period of time. This can cause a hard patch of skin and may be accompanied by discomfort and pain.
Callusol is a drug that is keratolytic. These drugs can be useful in calluses. However, not all calluses need the drug. You can just use the drug for several days. However, if there is no change in eating, you should check with your doctor directly, so that the doctor can check your condition regularly. You can also see a specialist surgeon.
In addition, the condition that you are experiencing at this time can also be caused by other causes such as keloids, there are still roots from fish eyes, abscesses in the legs.
Avoid using shoes or sandals that are too narrow and hard. Wear socks if you wear shoes.
