Can Keloid Prevention Injections Be Done Even In The Hospital Where The Surgery Is Performed?
Hello good night., About 3 weeks ago I operated on removing the benjolon which the doctor said was auricula tumor, after 3 times of control I was advised for further control to be injected using fluids for keloids, because I had to go back to college I left home and hospital I usually control, may I redeem the doctor’s prescription but not inject it by the doctor. I will look for the nearest hospital here, but I don’t know how many times this injection should be done. Karn said the doctor had to be routine.
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. We understand your confusion. Keloid is a type of scar that is marked by its thick shape and the color is quite contrasting with the surrounding skin. Keloids were first formed as a way for the body to repair itself from damaged tissue. It's just that, in patients with keloid tissue that has been repaired it continues to grow, thicken and even be larger than the wound itself.
Keloids are different from tumors. Tumors are abnormal tissue growths that appear not to be preceded by a wound first. In your case, the treatment your doctor gives may actually be more about handling to avoid the possibility of keloids appearing postoperatively, rather than treating the auricular tumor itself.
However, with your current condition that cannot routinely come to the doctor who treated you before, of course you can ask another doctor to do it. However, we advise you to first explain the history of the disease and the treatment you have received. For this reason, if you have been treated by a surgeon before, then look for a surgeon in your area. If you have previously been treated by a dermatologist, find a dermatologist as well as where you are now. If you are in doubt, consult a surgeon. Convey the prescription given by your doctor first and the recommendations it conveys. That way, you can continue the handling that you should receive. So, hopefully answering your question.
