Hypergranulation tissue

  1. 0
    Anyone have good results with any product/dressing for hypergranulation? Silver Nitrate isn't doing it, and is causing alot of pain, so I'm trying to come up with something less painful. The wound is tiny(3mmx3mm at the umbilicus) but just won't close completely.

    It's been checked for a retained suture, with no evidence found.

    For such a tiny wound, It may be as simple as TAO and a bandaid.

    Wound closed! We used a little bolster to add some pressure and it epithialized over rapidly! Sometime we make things much harder than they have to be! LOL!
