Keloid. I recommend you be seen an examined by a board certified dermatologist or pladtic surgeon. There is a great deal of misconception about what is a keloid. A scar that grows out into normal tissue is a simple definition. A scar that is raised, itchy or just thickened may simply represent a hypertrophic scar. A hypertrophic scar does not invade the normal surrounding tissue.
Treatment for keloid. Non surgical treatment for keloids includes silicone creams, strips, compression garments, steroid injections such as kenolog as well as radiation. They have a high recurrence rate. Surgical removal combined with radiation has the highest success rate up to 80% success. http://www.talroudnerplasticsurgery.com/.
