Re posting 15407 - "open" lump on finger.
You're spot on, Doc! - My wife's GP called it a "granuloma".
How do we best speed up the healing process? ie keep it covered? leave it uncovered? apply ointment? apply a drying agent?
THANX AGAIN FOR YOUR TIME.

Hubby, the best would be to keep it clean and to let it dry out. Good luck.
