Keloids are a type of scar that is red, elevated, painful to touch and itchy. A special feature of keloid is that it grows bigger than the original injury.
Some people have a tendency to form keloids. A minor pinprick or even an unnoticed injury can cause keloids in their body. Keloids can also happen after surgery or burns.Keloids can happen anywhere on the body except on palms and soles. Most common places where keloids occur are ears, shoulder, chest bone and back. Keloids can form after piercing, acne, burn, injury or surgery.
1. Keloid injections: These injections are given into the keloids, and they improve the symptoms and appearance of keloids.
2. Pressure therapy: Pressure on the scar with the help of pressure garment helps flatten the keloids
3. Silicone gel treatment: Silicone gel sheets or creams are an important part of keloid treatment.
