Overcoming Cat Bite Wounds That Become Keloids?
Skin problems. Tonight, I want to ask since last August I had a pet cat bite. But it has healed and has also been treated by doctors given oral medication as well. But until now the bite scars are like scars that are exposed to hot oil, so it’s like a keloid that is hard to disappear. Dermatix can remove the scar or what should I do? Thank you.
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically keloids can form due to excessive tissue healing to pass the actual wound limit. The main factor that causes the appearance of keloids is genetic factors.
To help prevent the appearance of keloids in wounds (including helping to reduce keloids in scars), several ways can be done. The way you can do it yourself is to use silicone gel over the scar or on the keloid. Silicone gel can be sheet-shaped (like a patch that can be affixed on a keloid) it can also be a gel that is applied over the keloid (like Dermatix). You should really pay attention to how to use this silicone gel to get maximum results. You must use this silicone gel all day, apply 2 days (morning and night) on the skin that has been cleaned and dried well and let stand for 5-7 minutes to dry. If it's erased, you have to re-apply the gel. New results can be seen within 6-8 weeks (recommended for use at least 2 months.
Another way to get rid of keloids is by injecting intralesional steroids into keloids, freezing of keloid tissue (cryotherapy), laser therapy, or surgical removal of keloids. You can consult your dermatologist directly to do these therapies.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
