Keloid Scar issues Information and facts

In taking care of your skin there are certain routines that we follow in order to protect our skin from harmful fungi and unwanted scars. However there are situations that no matter how we take good care of our skin, problems will still rise on the occasion. In this post we are going to tackle about Keloid scars, what it is, how to treat it and what to do if it's getting severe.
Scars arise when an open wound heals or when there is less production of collagen during rapid expansion or stretching of skin cells. A keloid scar happens when the production of tissue on a healing wound is abnormal. Depending on the circumstances, keloid varies in color, appearance and surface. Although it isn't acquired through air, it could be painful, itchy and the texture of the scar changes. In most cases, hypertrophic scars may be mistaken as keloid scars. 
Remedies like Topical Cream- the fate of the scar rely on how effective the scar eliminating cream you will use. The reason why I would encourage you to begin using cream is because it's cheaper and it requires minimal care. However you have to carefully choose the product that you are likely to use since there are a lot of scar removing creams on the market that aren't potent enough for keloid. The effectiveness of your scar removing cream can really really make a difference on how your scar might look.
Medical Surgery- having a surgery is a sure fire way to get rid of your issue and it is also one of the expensive method also. If your issue will be treated using other means, I would advise you to do so since surgery might require extra care during operation and after. There is also a 50-50 chance that the scar will re-appear if not properly cared.
Silicone keloid Scar Sheets- unless you have a good scar cream that you're going to use with a silicon scar sheet, this method won't be that effective. But there are two issues with this method that makes it less of an option. There are cases and reports that the scar did not disappear and it turned back to what it used to look once the application was stopped. It's also inconvenient to use and can cause itching most of the time.
Injection of steroid- if your keloid scar ages and begins to thicken, the best thing to do is ask your dermatologist to perform steroid injection on it. Two or more seasons of this process can totally erase the mark on your skin. However there are discussions about the safety of using it and the injection is very painful and uncomfortable.

In eliminating keloids it is best to take action during the early stages of the problem so that you won't have to spend too much time, effort and money treating it. In the worst case scenario a radiation therapy is your ultimate option to remove those awful scars. Although it is 100% effective, it still needs time and money in the process.
