Doctor FishThis article is about the freshwater fish used for treating skin diseases, notably in Kangal district in Turkey.

Doctor Fish

The name doctor fish (a.k.a. nibble fish, kangal fish, and doctorfishen) is given to two species of fish (Garra rufa and Cyprinion macrostomus). They live and breed in outdoor pools of some Turkish spas, where they feed on the skin of patients with psoriasis.

The fish consumes the affected and dead areas of the skin, leaving the healthy skin to grow. Treatments at spa may not cure completely but help symptoms to subside, although some patients have experienced a complete cure after repeated treatments.
