Keloids can be caused by a trigger event such as a burn, cut or other injury. Any type of scar can cause a keloid to form. A keloid can be identified as an overgrowth of tissue. A keloid can potentially grow to be much larger than the original scar itself. As a result, keloids pose cosmetic concerns as well as discomfort.
Freezing the scar or topical medications can help in reducing the size of the keloidal scar. One of our board-certified dermatologists at Skin And Cancer Institute can provide more guidance on the best course of action to treat your keloid scar or scars.
