What is Keloid?

When a skin injury occurs, fibrous scar tissue is formed over the wound. This helps in wound repair by providing protection for the injury. In some cases, the scar tissue grows excessively and results in the formation of a smooth and hard growth. These growths are called keloids, which can be larger than the original wound. Keloids are commonly found on the chest, shoulders, earlobes, and cheeks, but they can affect any part of the body. Though not harmful to the patient's health, it creates cosmetic and aesthetic concerns.

Treatments for Keloid

Keloids are caused as a result of the body's attempt to treat itself. So there are chances of them reappearing and growing to a larger size than before.

  • Corticosteroid injections to reduce inflammation.
  • Pressure application or silicone gel pads once the wound is healed.
  • Laser treatments will help reduce the scar tissue.
  • Application of moisturisers on the keloid to make it softer.
  • Cryotherapy, or cryosurgery, is where extreme cold is applied to kill the skin cells.
