I want to ask, will the asphalt scratches that are not too deep but scuffed due to a motorbike accident will cause keloids?

1 Answer:

Hello Gita Amalia,
Keloids are caused by an overgrowth of the connective tissue involved in the wound healing process.

not everyone will experience keloids, and usually this condition is related to genetic / hereditary factors.

So if someone has parents with a history of keloids, then types of wounds such as burns, scratches including asphalt, surgical scars and even piercings can potentially cause keloids.

But don't worry, because keloids can be removed in several ways, for example by periodically applying silicone gel, using lasers, or other therapies under the supervision of a doctor.

so hopefully useful

regards,
dr. Barrel
