abutment skin overgrowth
« on: November 02, 2022, 06:47:47 am »
I have had my baha for years with minimal swelling that was always resolved with medications.  This time the swelling is not subsiding and looking at skin removal this next week. My question is has any one use clobetasol for swelling and been successful ?  My other question is if you had skin removal how did the removal go and did you go back to work the same day ?  Was told it would take very little time an I would be in and out in no time.  Ones who had removal did you get overgrowth again ? I know so many questions just that i have weathered infections and always did fine and now this.  A bit worried about this procedure.  Will be done at a surgical center because my doctor does not have a sterile area in his office to do removal.  Thank you in advance for your help.

Thank you for your great post, qtrhrse15!

While I do not have baha (and no skin removal), I would be very curious to hear from others and the experience they have had with clobetasol and how their skin removal went.

And please update us on how it went after your surgery goes so that others can learn from your experience.

Best wishes!
