Umbilical Cautery

Umbilical Cautery

Umbilical granulomas in babies don't have nerve endings, so they can be treated with a small amount of silver nitrate, it can be applied to the umbilical stump with a cotton swab. The silver nitrate acts to cauterize and dry up the tissue at the base of the stump, allowing normal skin to grow over. This may be repeated until the granuloma is healed.
