Overcoming The Scar Operation Of The Fish Eye With Pus And Redness?
Hello doctor, I have a question. a month ago I had fish eye surgery, on the seventh day I was exposed to water. At first my leg didn’t hurt anymore, but over time the pain came back red and came out a little bit of pus when it was red, my leg got more painful and purple in color. Why could it be like that?
If the complaint you wrote down appears in the area where the fish eye has been scraped off, it may be a symptom of infection.
Fish eye or clavus is a thickening of the skin that occurs due to repeated pressure / friction on the same skin area over a long period of time.
Fish eyes are usually smaller than calluses. Fish eyes can cause pain and inflammation. So under certain conditions, action is needed to erode the fish's eye. The process of scraping the skin in the fish eye area, usually using sterile tools and procedures. If the area has experienced complete healing, which will usually be evaluated by the doctor who performed the procedure, then it is permissible to use activities as usual.
Unfortunately, it is difficult to determine whether the complaint you are experiencing is an infected wound condition if you don't do a direct medical examination.
Signs of infected wounds:
The wound area appears to be more extensive and red, sometimes accompanied by swelling.
The discharge appears in the form of pus and or blood.
Feels painful and sometimes accompanied by fever.
So you should check with your doctor to get certainty whether the wound has an infection or not. The doctor will perform a medical examination and provide wound management.
If the wound is infected with bacteria, usually the doctor will clean the wound area and then give antibiotic ointment.
The doctor will also teach your wound care.
Keep your hands and the tools used to treat the wound clean. Wash your hands with soap and clean running water every time you do wound care, both before and after.
