Umbilical Granuloma

umbilical granuloma in infant

Our 2 week old son’s umbilical cord if falling off, but leaving a yellow stump. Is this normal? Is there any treatment?

Your son has an umbilical granuloma. While not “normal” it is very common and treatable. An umbilical granuloma is a scar formation that occasionally develops during the separation of the umbilical cord. Take him to see his primary physician. Umbilical granulomas are treated with silver nitrate. Upon application the yellow, juicy granuloma turns grey and begins to dry up. Often multiple applications are required for a good result.
