KELOID/ HYPERTROPHIC SCAR TREATMENT
When skin is injured, fibrous tissue called scar tissue forms over the wound to repair and protect the injury. In some cases extra scar tissue grows, forming smooth, hard growth called keloids. Keloids can be much larger than the original wound. They’re most commonly found on the chest ,shoulder ,earlobes and cheeks. However keloids can affect any part of the body.
Keloids are sometimes confused with another more common type of scar called hypertrophic scars. These are flat scars that can range from pink to brown and color. Unlike keloids, hypertrophic scars are smaller and they can go away on their own overtime.
Initially the doctor will probably recommend less invasive treatment such as silicone pads, pressure dressings or injections especially if the scar is a fairly new one.
In the case of very large keloids or an older keloid scar,surgical removal may be recommended.
