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?

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.
