Hello, nikita shela, thanks for asking HealthReplies.com.
Fish eye or clavus is a protrusion and thickening of the skin that often occurs due to frequent and continuous pressure and friction on certain parts. Apart from fish eyes, things that often resemble fish eyes are calluses or calluses and verucca vulgaris. To determine the type of lump you have, a doctor's examination should be done. The doctor will interview, perform a physical examination, and if necessary, additional investigations such as a biopsy will be performed (looking at the tissue under a microscope). There are several treatment options available, for example by surgery, with ointments / creams containing salicylic acid, and in verucca there is the option of cryotherapy (freezing therapy). Treatment must be in accordance with the cause, severity and condition of the patient (because certain drugs / therapies have contraindications in certain circumstances), so you should check with your doctor.
If you experience symptoms such as: discharge of pus, pain, fever, the lump is getting bigger, go to the doctor immediately and don't delay it.
To prevent severity and prevent relapse, do the following:
1. Use comfortable footwear, not too pressing / rubbing against the surface of the fingers, not narrow.
2. Consult a dermatologist for the use of foot care products.
3. Keep your feet clean, don't keep your feet closed in a damp state.
4. Do not pry, scratch, or touch the lump especially if hands are not washed.
That's all, hopefully it's useful.
