Sores Appear Beside The Toes And Are Painful?
, I have a complaint in my leg there is a wound like a fish eye but not a fish eye. So the wound is next to my middle toe, and when pressed it hurts and aches. I wonder why? Thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The appearance of painful foot wounds can be caused by many factors, one of which is the fish's eye (clavus). These fish eyes arise due to thickened skin and then become inflamed due to friction or repetitive pressure. This condition often appears as a thickened area of skin surrounded by a reddish, painful side, often containing pus. Often the appearance of the fish's eye is not too typical, so difficult to recognize by the sufferer.
Aside from the eyes of the fish, a sore on your foot that you experience may also be caused by:
Foot skin infections, such as bacteria, fungi, mites, or viruses Irritant contact dermatitis Mechanical injuries, for example due to scratches, bumps or being crushed hard enough Insect bites Immune disorders, etc. You should check the complaint directly to your doctor or dermatologist. That way, the cause of your complaint can be identified properly and given appropriate treatment. The handling can vary, ranging from topical drug administration, surgery, and so on according to the cause of the complaint.
As a preliminary treatment, you should not over-handle or give careless handling of wounds that appear on your feet. Be diligent about washing your feet, and always wear clean, dry, comfortable padded footwear to support your daily activities. If the pain and pain that arises is very disturbing, you can first take the drug paracetamol to relieve it.
I hope this helps.
