What is Keloid?
When a skin injury occurs, a fibrous scar tissue is formed over the wound. This helps in wound repair by providing protection to the injury. In some cases the scar tissue grows excessively and results in 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 concern.
The symptoms occur at the site of injury site and some of them include:
Keloid scarring can occur from different types of skin injuries like :
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 size larger than before.
