Keloid is an excessive body mechanism in the wound healing process, where scar tissue or fibroids will multiply to cover the wound, beyond the wound itself. Some experts believe keloids are related to genetic factors. This means that someone has the potential to experience keloids if parents also experience keloids.
Keloid is benign, but if the growth is not controlled, it can be a sign of malignancy. Symptoms that often appear are itching, pain, and irritation if there is friction on the keloid. So the symptoms experienced in this case are normal in cases of Keloid in general.
How to get rid of keloids can be done with surgery or medication.
Surgery, can be one way to remove keloids. The doctor will cut the keloid. However, this method has the risk of developing other keloids, which can even be greater than the initial keloid.

For treatment, there are several options such as: steroid injections. Steroid injections into keloids are safe but quite painful. This injection is carried out routinely one to two times a month until the keloid is deflated.
