I have a deep cut on my leg that has developed some white granulation tissue inside at the base of the wound. Any idea what it might be?

I have an ingrown toenail. The infections seems to have gone away but I have hypertrophic granulation tissue. Will it go away? Is it okay to have?
Depends.: As an ingrown toenail becomes worse, it will set off the body's inflammatory response to it. Redness, swelling and pain will start. The granulation is in response to the increased tissue irritation caused by the ingrowing nail. The tissue may or may not become infected as bacteria is allowed to enter the tissue. Clearing the infection may not be enough to resolve this issue. See a specialist. ...Read more

How to stop granulation tissue of toenail I am 53 non-diabetic healthy female with chronic ingrown toe-nail, which I usually manage conservatively. About 10 days ago it became infected and formed an area of pus, which has drained and now appears to be he
See a Podiatrist:
Granulation tissue forms from a chronic ingrown toenail. In order to stop it, the offending painful nail border must be removed and the area where the nail is produced must be chemically cauterized. This is a very simple office procedure which takes five minutes and is painless under local anesthesia.

Neuro or Ortho Surgeon - which better for sub articular disc protrusion with adjacent granulation tissue from old L5 laminectomy?
Neurologist: Neurologist is the 1st step for an EMG/NCS study which will show if your L5 root is having an ongoing damage (would show up as active denervation changes on EMG).

How long will there be any odor after silver nitrate treatment for granulation? Had a total hysterectomy 5 months ago due to cancer. Nervous!
No odor: Silver nitrate does not produce an odor. When used with a granuloma that is not healing well the silver acts as an antiseptic and allows for faster healing of a granulomatous wound. It was originally used in Argerol as a mouth wash and has been employed at other sites to heal a raw wound. Any odor wound come from an underlying seroma in a wound and should be checked by Gyn surgeon. ...Read more
I have myelofibrosis and complication of hardening of connective tissues. Is there a treatment for this complication?
Maybe.: Myelofibrosis is a unusual disease of blood and bone marrow where the marrow is replaced by what looks like scar tissue. This results in bone marrow cells moving to the liver and spleen, those organs enlarge and become hard. There is one drug, jakafi, (ruxolitinib) fda approved to shrink the spleen. There are other drugs like it in trial. Only cure is bone marrow transplant, but there are significant risks. ...Read more

It's whether you can stand pain if bruises or cuts remain to be healed. ...Read more
