My grandfather’s leg was wound like a fish’s eye but all the surfaces were soft. And the eyes that were shaped like lumps looked like flesh. My grandfather said that at first it was because he stepped on a conch. And haven’t healed for 2 months either. What disease is that? How to solve it? Thank you

Hi hilmisr,


Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.

The clavus (fish eye) generally appears as a hard and rough mass on a part of the body that is subject to excessive friction and pressure, for example on the legs. This hard mass occurs as a result of excessive deposition of hardened keratin and is prone to injury and irritation, causing a sore, even watery, or suppurating feeling.


If the complaints that your grandfather experienced are mushy in consistency and resemble meat, then this is likely due to:


Warts (HPV virus infection)
Keloid, hypertrophic scar
Tumors, eg lipomas, fibromas, sarcomas, cysts
Skin tags

Folliculitis (hair root infection)

Candidiasis (yeast infection)
Tinea pedis

Contact dermatitis, and so on

Given that complaints have occurred for up to 2 months, you should ask your grandfather to check his complaint directly to the doctor. Chances are, if the lump is abnormal, the doctor will recommend that he undergo minor surgery to remove the lump. The doctor can also prescribe medication or refer your grandfather to the anatomical pathology department for a biopsy examination so that the cause of the lump is known.


At this point, remind your grandfather to first do the following:

Keep her feet clean
Avoid walking in dirty places barefoot
Wear clean, dry footwear
Wash your feet regularly
Avoid squeezing or picking at lumps
Don't put anything on the bumps

Hope this helps ..
