Hard And Painful Lump On The Sole Of The Foot?
Dear doctor, I have a fish eye on the sole of my foot, the lump is hard and painful when it is pressed, then around the lump there is another small lump (it feels like a blister) which hurts too, but does not fester. Only this hard lump has peeled off the skin, the soles of my feet also like to sweat. What is the best recommendation? Tks
Good afternoon, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Fish eye or in medical language is called clavus, is a thickening of the skin that occurs due to repeated pressure or friction. The eyes of a fish are usually round in shape and have a hard center surrounded by inflamed skin.
Among the factors that increase the risk of developing a fish eye are:
Wearing uncomfortable shoes, such as too narrow, too loose or high heels. Using shoes without socks Smokers, in the context of smokers who often use lighters so that their thumbs are often rubbed Often use tools or musical instruments by hand
Our advice is that you should check the condition with a general practitioner or surgeon to get treatment which can be in the form of surgery, administering drugs in the form of creams or ointments to remove dead skin cells, using adjustable shoe pads or the action of thinning the layers of the skin with a knife. .
Meanwhile, to prevent the appearance of other fish eyes, among what you can do is wear shoes or footwear that are comfortable and according to size, wear socks, and apply a special foot moisturizing cream. We wish you and your family good health.
That's all, hope it helps.
