Hello doctor,

I have a red vascular outgrowth on the left side of forehead for many years. It is causing pain and burning sensation. Please advice best creams to erase it totally.

Welcome to

It is pyogenic granuloma and it needs removal by radiofrequency or electrocautery procedure (attachment removed to protect patient identity). It cannot be eradicated by creams or lotions.

Thank you doctor,

But I request you to advice best creams for time being for immediate relief.

Welcome back to

For the relief of burning sensation use tablet Hicope (Hydroxyzine) 10 mg one daily night for three days. 1 % Cutisoft cream (Hydrocortisone) twice daily application for two weeks. But get it removed as soon as possible. The creams actually do not work much as it is not allergic or infective dermatitis.
