Active Comparator: Silver Nitrate
Silver Nitrate is supplied in the form of pre-packaged applicator sticks to parents and patients. The concentration is 75% Silver Nitrate and 25% Potassium Nitrate. Application will be done 3 times a week for a period of 3 weeks.
Drug: Silver Nitrate
Silver nitrate to be applied 3 times weekly for a period of 3 weeks.
Active Comparator: Kenalog (Triamcinolone)
Kenalog is a topical corticosteroid that shares anti-inflammatory, anti-pruritic, and vasoconstrictive actions.The dosage of Kenalog used in the study is 0.5%. Application is topical, and the frequency is 3 times a day for the 3 week trial period. FDA approved use of Kenalog in the treatment of inflammatory and pruritic manifestations of corticosteroid-responsive dermatoses. It has not been studied whether Kenalog has any proven advantage over Silver nitrate in the treatment of granulation tissue, but it has been used for the treatment of granulation tissue at the gastrostomy site with good effect.
Drug: Kenalog (Triamcinolone)
Triamcinolone will be applied as an ointment to the granulation tissue site three times daily for a total of three weeks.
Active Comparator: Washcloth Abrasion
Washcloth abrasion will be done with regular soap and water applied to a washcloth. The granulation tissue will be gently washed and abraded once daily for three weeks.
Other: Washcloth Abrasion
Gentle wash and abrasion with washcloth done once daily for a total of 3 weeks.
- Decrease in size (mm) of granulation tissue [ Time Frame: 8 weeks ]Measurements are calculated from photographs taken with a millimeter ruler next to granulation tissue on a horizontal plane and a vertical plane.
