Umbilical Granuloma?

My son has an umbilical granuloma, the ped treated it with silver nitrate yesterday, but it is still oozing. Just wondering if anyone knows how long after the treatment it normally takes for it to dry up? I am still waiting for the ped ot call back, I forgot to ask at the appt yesterday.
