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

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.

I can I regrow corpora cavernosa? I had implant surgery with the removal of implant devise. Will my body regrow this tissue with stimulated jelqing?

Extremely unlikely;: One of the many complications of surgery too many don't consider. Starting from a single fertilized cell in utero, our body constantly both tears itself down & rebuilds; all rebuilding being based on pre-existing cell, tissue, organ structure, etc. Via mechanisms which remain only very partially understood. Once structure changes, by any basis, this changes the rebuilding & resulting structure (s). ...Read more

Would a surgery for large-scale removal of adipose tissue in obese individuals ever be viable, or even theoretically possible?

Fat removal: Not likely. Your fat contains receptors for a number of hormones and chemical signals. It would be unwise to remove those from your body. Also, it would not remove the fat from the organs in the abdominal cavity (like the liver for instance). So no, I don't see that becoming a cure for obesity. It would be purely cosmetic. ...Read more

Healing by granulation takes a while. Be patient. Keep the area as clean as possible. You can always follow up with your surgeon if you're concerned.

Had a/p vagina wall repair 2 weeks ago. I have a lot of tissue granulation on the posterior wall, is this normal? It hurts, will it go away? Worried.

TwoWeeks? That'sNothn: Oh yes, you need to give it more time. Two weeks is nothing. Yeah, and stop fooling around! You need more time to heal. The scars will eventually model to the contours in there. The tissue in there, like in the mouth, heals fairly quickly. But in your case there's "remodeling"that needs to take place over time. And the sutures need to be absorbed and the healing inflammation calm down. Chill. You'll heal ...Read more
