Keloids are kind of hypertrophic scars with abnormal uncontrollable growth. If the edges are still red and itchy, it means that they are still growing. Individuals with darkly pigmented skin are 15 times more likely to develop keloids, with those of African, Hispanic, and Asian ethnicities at greatest risk. Keloids are equally common in women and men. Keloids are less common in children and the elderly. Keloids can occur in people of all skin types. In some cases, the tendency to form keloids seems to run in families.
Injections and pressure is usually the gold standard treatment for keloids. Dosage, frequency and interval vary with the protocols used. Minimum of 3 injections at monthly interval usually help flatten keloids. Injection treatment may also be complemented to surgery if it is decided upon.
