How To Deal With Fish Eyes In Children Aged 2 Years?
Good morning. R nI want to ask, my 2-year-old child on the index finger near his nails like a fish eye, how do I cure it? R n r nThank you.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Fish eye, or clavus, is a skin disorder that arises from repeated friction or pressure on the skin. This condition is usually characterized by a rounded area that is hard to the touch and surrounded by inflamed skin. This round and hardened shape resembles the eye of a fish in the middle, hence the name.
Among the factors that increase the risk of a fish's eye appearance are:
Use uncomfortable footwear
Do not use socks
Using musical instruments or tools that are often rubbed against his hands
People with sweat gland abnormalities
Having scars or warts
How to walk on the inside or outside of the foot
Crooked leg abnormalities or defects
In your case, with a age of 2 years, you should really look for possible causes because the fish eye might not just appear. Our advice, you should check your child to a general practitioner first to see whether it is a fish eye or not, and if it's a fish eye, what are the possible causes. Because if no cause is found, it is not impossible that it will repeat itself. If it is not a fish eye, it depends on its appearance, the possibility could be a skin peeling disorder, warts, or skin tumors.
For the handling of the fish eye itself can vary, by giving topical medication, using special shoes, or surgery either small or large, depending on the situation and your doctor's decision later. Meanwhile, there is no need to worry too much because the fish eye is not a dangerous disease and generally does not get worse. So, hopefully answering your question.
