  1. My son is 1 year old and about 23 lbs has a small round one by his left eye about 2 to 3 mm. Doctors are no help wanting to do surgery freezing/ burning etc. Are any of these safe for him?

  2. Do you have any recommendations for recurring pyrogenic granuloma occurring within voice box? Had them removed twice but reoccurred

    1. This particular case of pyogenic granuloma shown in the article had shown fastest recovery in record time ever at my clinic, it had got cured with 7-10 days, but not all cases respond so quickly and it usually takes 2-6 months of treatment.

  3. Man I have had my pyogenic granuloma for about a year now but around september I started using Topical Salt and it was shrinking and sometime in January like half of it fell off and I was feeling good about it and in the next couple of months it might have been shrinking still but at the end of the day I don’t like having tape and stuff on my face and around my hair. My Pyogenic Granuloma looks smaller than most pimples and is just elevated skin or tissue but I wan’t it gone and be back to normal like it was before. Will this work? Is it oral or topical, and whats the risk of scarring or anything like that?Also where could I find the products and what are the directions or recommendations.

    1. We treat pyogenic granuloma non surgically only with oral homeopathic medicines so treatment doesn’t cause scaring like in surgery or topical application treatments. For more info call us on number provided on website.
