How To Get Rid Of Keloids After Surgery?
Mlm. Post cyst surgery (laparatomi) in February 2019 I was given an ultra dermatix to remove scars and prevent keloids. But after 3 months of use, keloids actually appear and feel itchy. I am currently trying to use bio oil but it hasn’t changed. Mhn what is the right ointment to remove the keloid. Thank you
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically keloids can arise due to excessive growth of healing tissue after trauma or injury to the skin. Anyone can experience keloids, but the risk of keloids will be higher in people who have dark skin color, Asians and Latinos, pregnant women, young people (less than 30 years old), and most of all are people who have offspring (people old) who are also prone to keloids.
The appearance of keloids can be prevented by the use of silicone gels (can be in the form of silicone gel sheets that are applied to scars), can also be in the form of gels that are applied (like Dermatix). Until now the use of silicone gel is the most effective way to prevent the appearance of keloids and reduce the existing keloids. Other therapies, such as the use of moisturizing creams or oils, have not been proven to be effective in removing keloids. Other therapies that can be done at a dermatologist include intralesional injection with steroids, or surgical removal of keloids.
Because this is only 3 months after surgery, you should do your doctor's advice to use silicone gel first. Good results can only be seen in a long time (the fastest 2 months, but can also take up to 6 months). If you use silicone gel sheets (which are sticked on), you have to use them at least 12 hours a day, if you use silicone gel that is smeared, you have to apply at least 2 times a day, apply again if they are erased by water. Make sure you read the correct way to use printed on your silicone gel packaging for maximum results. If in the next 2 months your keloid does not improve, consult directly to a dermatologist for other therapeutic options.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
