Hi Lina,


Thanks for the question. Flesh that grows near the nails and skin with the production of pus is known as a pyogenic granuloma. The cause of the appearance of these granulomas is not known with certainty. These granulomas usually appear in association with an infection of the nail or what is called paronychia after an injury to the toe (for example in the form of an impact or using shoes that are too narrow). At first appearance, granulomas are usually painless and red. However, over time, they can increase in size, become more prominent, have a rough surface, and may bleed or ooze pus.


You should immediately consult a doctor for further examination and treatment. If indeed the growing flesh is a granuloma, the doctor will usually perform minor surgery to remove this tissue. Don't worry because before this procedure the doctor will give you a local anesthetic so you don't feel pain. Apart from minor surgery, this condition can also be treated with cauterization (burning the meat with heat energy), lasers, or with cryotherapy (burning the meat with cold energy).


Temporarily avoid using shoes so as not to rub against the meat. Keep the area dry and clean. You can also take paracetamol if pain is bothering you.


I hope this helps.
