After Having Had A Keloid Injection And A Moment It Went Flat, The Keloid Appeared Again.?
Good Morning HealthReplies.com.
Hello, good morning Mnarh.
When the skin is injured, scar tissue will form over the wound to repair and protect the wound. In some cases, the scar tissue grows excessively, forming hard, smooth growths known as keloids. Keloids can appear anywhere on the body. Although keloids are not dangerous, they can interfere with appearance. Keloids tend to have a genetic component, which means a person is more likely to have them if their parents also have them. Ways to deal with keloids include:
fluorouracil injection corticosteroid injection using silicone gel laser surgery to cut keloids and so on
You need to know that handling keloids is sometimes not easy and not always effective, thus it does not mean that keloids cannot be cured, but it requires gradual therapy or combination therapy. Doctors will usually recommend simple therapy first, such as injection / injection, especially if the keloid that appears is new. Injection therapy requires repeated and careful measures. In large keloids or old keloids, surgery may be indicated. However, the recurrence rate of keloids is still quite high after surgery, so doctors often recommend steroid injections after surgery to minimize the possibility of keloid recurrence.
Regarding what actions you should take at this time, whether you need more injections or not, depends on several things, one of which is the condition and extent of the keloid. We cannot conclude whether you need repeat injections or other measures because we do not check your keloid directly. Therefore, we recommend that you consult your doctor again, to follow up on your case. Regarding the chest pain that you feel, most likely it is not related to the keloid you are experiencing. Possible causes for your chest pain include muscle pain (myalgia), nervous disorders (neuropathy), etc.
I hope this helps.
