  • Keloid

Have you ever tried to pierce the ear , the ear grows red, swelling and the granulation occur?
Does the wound look like tumor-like tissue hyperplasia, spread to scars, and cause itching and pain?


• Scar tissue grows excessively, forming smooth, hard growths called keloids.
• They’re most commonly found on the chest, shoulders, earlobes, back and arms

  • Cause

1. Overgrowth of dense fibrous tissue that develops after healing of a skin injury
2. As Anabolic and Catabolic processes Not Able to achieve equilibrium during Healing Process
àExcessive fibrous tissue is produced
àExcess collagen is produced
àScar is elevated above the skin and remains hyperemic

Although keloids aren’t harmful to your health, they may create cosmetic concerns.

It may be tender, itchy, painful or sometimes produce a burning sensation.

  • Treatment

1. Intralesional Steroid Injections

Steroid injections may be used to help flatten keloids; however, they can also make the flattened keloid redder by stimulating the formation of more superficial blood vessels. Over use of steroid injections may also lead to skin atrophy or depressions.

2. Traditional Surgery

Traditional surgery, removing the keloid scar, can result in a bigger keloid 

3. Intralesional Excision + Radiotherapy

Radiotherapy has the risk of causing cancers and should be reserved only for difficult cases.
