How To Deal With Sores?
Can corticosteroid ointment for ulcers?
Hello Zuhrotus, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Scabs or scars are a natural process that occurs when the wound is healing on the skin. Sores can take many forms, ranging from scars that appear darker or lighter than the surrounding skin (hyper or hypopigmented), scars that appear sunken in (hypotrophic or atrophic scars), scars that appear protruding (scars hypertrophic or keloid wounds). After a burn, a healing of the skin can occur, known as a contracture.
Management of each type of scar above can be different, but in general corticosteroid creams / ointments are not used to remove the scars above. Sometimes corticosteroid creams can be combined with other types of creams to get rid of scars in the form of hyperpigmentation, but these creams are not used alone (not a single therapy). In conditions of hypertrophic or keloid scars, the doctor may order intralesional corticosteroid injections (the injection is given to the scar) to help reduce and eliminate this type of scar. Applying cream alone will likely not have any effect on healing this type of wound.
Corticosteroid creams / ointments are included in the types of hard drugs that you should not buy and use without consulting your doctor first. Corticosteroid creams can have a variety of side effects when used for a long time or on large areas of skin.
