Keloid

more about Keloid




Normal

Abnormal
  • Normally, when the skin is cut, the cells of the underlying connective tissue rush in to repair the area by forming a collagen-based scar.  Under normal circumstances, the cells know at what point they should stop making scar tissue.  However, in some genetically predisposed individuals, the cells do not stop when they are supposed to, causing excess heavy scar tissue (keloid) to form.
  • Keloid is a rubbery, dark red, firm mass of scar tissue that is less common in fair-skinned individuals, than in those with dark skin.

  • Treatment of keloids is difficult, and as of now, the best treatment is prevention.  Individuals prone to keloid formation should take extra care of their skin and avoid unnecessary surgery, piercing, or trauma.
