How do you treat granulation tissue?
Granulation tissue is a kind of tissue generated in a healing
wound to both break down damaged tissue and to help prevent
infection, however, sometimes growth of granulation tissue can be
too robust. An excess of granulation tissue is informally known in
the medical community as "proud flesh". Depending on the specifics
of your case, a treating physician may apply a fine layer of silver
nitrate to the excess tissue. This, in effect, cauterizes the
granulation tissue (though the process is reportedly painless) and
allows new healthy cell growth above that layer of flesh.
