About Keloid Scar

Keloid is a condition that has been over-diagnosed in Malaysia. The moment one sees a thick looking scar, the word ‘keloid’ is commonly uttered. Many at times, merely hypertrophy scars instead of ‘Keloids’. True Keloids can be very debilitation as the very treatment of keloid itself can itself worsen keloids. There are many stages of severity in terms of keloids. In some cases, simple acts of frequent massages can help. As for others, they may need intra-lesion corticosteroid injection with or without fractional lasers. And in a very severe cases, it may even require surgical de-bulking with close post procedural monitoring. It is best to have your keloid assessed physically by a doctor before your treatment options are discussed.
