Background: Alcohol, antibiotic ointments, silver nitrate and ligation had been presented for treatment of umbilical granuloma. Salt powder due to its hyper osmolarity effects can induce drying and necrosis of granuloma tissue. Present parallel single blind randomized clinical trial was performed in neonates of shahvali hospital for assessment of salt powder in management of umbilical granuloma.
Patients and Methods: Present parallel single blinded randomized clinical trial was performed on 60 neonates with umbilical granuloma between January and October 2015. Our samples were selected randomly from neonates with healthy umbilical granuloma. Neonates in case group, salt powder was prescribed in five days (30 minutes two times per day) and located on the umbilical granuloma. During these five days neonates in control group were only clinically examined. Complete removal of umbilical granuloma was considered as study outcome.
Results: Umbilical granuloma removed in all neonates of case group who were treated with salt powder but in control group, only four neonates had complete granuloma removing. Recovery rate had significant difference between two trial groups (p=0.00).
Conclusion: Management of umbilical granuloma with salt powder in neonates had suitable therapeutic effects in comparison with other methods without any complications.
