What Are Keloid Scars

keloid photo by Michael RodgerWhen a wound heals, it leaves a scar. A keloid is a special type of scar, one that grows too much and can even become larger than the original wound. It is not uncommon for surgical or injury scars to become a little lumpy (hypertrophic). A keloid differs from these in several ways:

A keloid can develop after very minor skin damage, such as an acne spot, or even if there has been no obvious damage to the skin at all.

It can spread outside the original area of skin damage.  It may last for many years.

What Causes Keloids To Occur?

This is not fully understood. Most people never get keloids, others get them after the most minor of injuries. Several things affect the risk of getting one:

Dark skinned people get keloids much more easily than those with a paler skin. They are especially common in people with black skin.

Keloids can crop up anywhere but do so most easily on certain areas, such as the skin around the upper chest and shoulders - particularly over the breastbone (sternum) - and on the earlobes.

Wounds that are under tension while healing, or which get infected, are particularly likely to form keloids, as are burn and acne scars.

Keloids are most common between the ages of 10 and 30 years.

Keloids are not caught from someone else and carry no risk of turning into a cancer.

How Will A Keloid Be Diagnosed?

Your doctor will be able to make the diagnosis of a keloid just by looking at your skin. No investigations are usually needed.

Can A Keloid Be Cured?

It is unusual for a keloid to be cured by surgery. The main problem is that cutting a keloid out often leads to an even bigger one forming later in the same place.

How Can A Keloid Be Treated?

See our available Keloid treatments:

HBG Keloid Paste (Black Paste), BHL Keloid Cream With Snake Oil, BHL Keloid Salve, Silicone Gel Scar Sheet Bandage, CBG Hypertrphic Scar Ointment

If a keloid is cut out, it usually comes back, and may end up larger than it was before.

What's The Difference Between A Hypertrophic Scar & A Keloid?

Hypertrophic scars are raised scars that grow within the original area that the skin was damaged.

Keloid scars are raised scars that grow further outside of the original area that the skin was damaged.

Hypertrophic scars form immediately after the skin is damaged.

Keloid scars may not form immediately.  They can begin forming months or even a year after the skin is damaged.

Can I Remove Moles If I Suffer With Keloids?

No, you should not attempt any cosmetic procedure if you are prone to keloid scarring. Our advice that you should only have moles removed if it has become cancerous.  This whole diagnosis and procedure should be carried out by a medical professional. Do not use Mole & Wart EZ Clear on keloid prone skin.

Are Keloids Hereditary?

They can be - a tendency to get keloids certainly runs in some families.

Symptoms Of A Keloid?

Usually there are none; but some are tender, painful, itchy, or cause a burning sensation.

The main problem is that their appearance may cause embarrassment. If they are very tight, they can limit movement at nearby joints.

What Does A Keloid Look Like?

Keloids look like exaggerated scars. They are raised above the skin around them and sometimes they are domed. keloids can extend beyond the limits of the skin damage that caused the scar to come up in the first place.

Keloids are shiny and hairless; usually they feel hard and rubbery; new ones are often red or purple, becoming browner and sometimes paler as they age.

Most people with keloids have only one or two. However some people have many, especially if they have come up after acne or chickenpox scars.

How Can I Avoid Keloids?

With keloids, prevention is better than cure.
You have an extra risk of getting a keloid if: You have had a keloid before, Members of your family have had them, You have a dark skin.

If you are at risk, you should avoid tattoos or body piercing, particularly if these would go through one of the high-risk areas of skin, such as the ear lobes.

If you have acne, see your doctor to make sure it is treated vigorously to limit the risk of scarring. You should avoid having skin surgery for cosmetic purposes.
