Is it bothersome?: Keloids are enlarged scars that are larger than the original wound. They form for unknown reasons and are generally harmless but can become itchy or uncomfortable. If your keloid is bothersome for you, then there a variety of treatment options that are available to you. If it does not bother you, then you can leave it and not worry about it.
