Lumps Appear On The Scars On The Lips?
HealthReplies.com I want to tell you first when I was 8 years old when I fell from my bicycle, then my lips hurt inside, but when my mother wanted to treat it I prevented it because it was very painful. itself but this auntie seemed to have a lump in it so that it disturbed my confidence until now. Please accept the solution 🙂
Hello! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
The wound healing process can happen on its own, without the need for treatment. However, healing without proper care can lead to complications, such as infection and an abnormal healing process.
When we are injured, the blood vessels will be damaged, so that the blood components will come out of the blood vessels. Then, platelets will come and blood clots occur to stop the bleeding. In addition, inflammatory cells will also come to prevent infection. In this phase, the skin (or in this case the lips) is in an inflammatory phase, so it looks red and swollen and feels warm with pain. After that, new blood vessels and new tissue will be formed to replace the damaged tissue. Over time, this new tissue will become the final product in the form of scars or even keloids in certain people. Disruption in the healing process can be caused mainly by infection and impaired blood intake as well as abnormalities in the healing process itself.
Infection is more prone to injury at the time of injury because the blood vessels are open and the part that was initially protected by the skin becomes exposed to the outside world. Infection usually occurs early in the wound. If an infection occurs, the wound healing will take a very long time and no new tissue is formed as in the normal process that I have previously described. Just like an infection, impaired blood intake will also cause the wound to not heal and no new tissue to form because the formation of new blood vessels is one of the keys to wound healing. In this case, there is very little chance of infection or impaired blood intake because the wound is now closed (healed).
On the other hand, the long process of wound healing can put the scar at risk of abnormalities or abnormalities. Excessive wound healing will form keloids or scars that are more prominent. In normal scars, the scars will shrink on their own even though they appear prominent at first. Whereas in keloids, the prominent scars cannot be reduced. Keloids can occur due to excessive collagen production without sufficient skin rearrangement processes.
In addition to keloids, a healing disorder that may occur is a fusion of skin tissue that does not match the original tissue. This is especially true for wounds that are large or deep. Parts of skin separated by wounds will experience healing respectively or the meeting between two separate skin parts does not form a perfect union. Because of this, doctors will usually suture the wound if it looks large or deep.
In this case, you can consult a surgeon or plastic surgeon to find out more about what lumps are on your lips and discuss future treatment plans. If the lump is indeed due to an abnormal wound healing process, the doctor may recommend injections into the scar or certain measures to minimize the existing lump. Of course, the doctor will consider the procedure based on the size and possible cause of the lump once examined.
That's my explanation. Hopefully can help.
