What are Pyogenic Granulomas?
Pyogenic granuloma are small red bumps that grow on the skin. Prone to bleeding, skin granulomas are filled with blood vessels. The bumps can also be moist, and may ooze with fluid. Although they are typically harmless to your overall health, pyogenic granuloma can be painful and irritating. Most common in the mouth, they can also develop on the face, hands, feet, arms and other parts of the body.
