Ask A Skin Doctor: Pyogenic Granuloma Treatment

Dear Doctor

Actually it was something like a “Ghaaw” that occurred on my lips nearly 3 weeks ago.

I’ve tried every single thing like boroplus, boroline, boroplus heated, Vaseline and honey, but to no avail!

It still bleeds a lot whenever it gets touched even slightly by a cloth or fingertip or toothbrush, etc.!

I’m doing mass communication and this disease has become like a black mole on my personality!

I know its temporary but, still, I wanna get rid of this hassle ASAP!

Doc, please pleae have me and tell me the way to get rid of it! I’ve lost patience & confidence now! Please reply asap Doc!

Dear Patient

Your picture is very unclear and I do not know what a “Ghaaw” is.

However symptoms of a swelling on the lip that bleeds a lot at the slightest provocation are suggestive of a pyogenic granuloma.

Pyogenic Granuloma Treatment

The treatment of pyogenic granulomas is surgical excision. This means that you have to consult your dermatologist and schedule when you will have it removed after the area has been numbed with local anesthesia.

Howver, if you are pregnant wait until you deliver because if you remove it before the baby is born it may recur.
