StrechmKeloid / Hypertrophic Scars
Keloids are a form of a hypertrophic scar which are firm, rubbery lesions and can vary from pink to the color of the patient’s skin or red to dark brown in color. A keloid scar is benign and not contagious, but sometimes accompanied by severe itchiness, pain and changes in texture. Although they usually occur at the site of an injury, can also arise spontaneously. They can occur at the site of a piercing and even from something as simple as a pimple or scratch. They can occur as a result of severe acne or chickenpox scarring, infection at a wound site, repeated trauma to an area, excessive skin tension during wound closure or a foreign body in a wound.
