Swelling is a symptom of a certain medical condition or condition. Swelling in certain body parts can be caused by inflammation due to infection, accumulation of body fluids or due to allergic reactions. In certain circumstances, stitches can produce excess collagen so that the keloid formed on the skin. However, to ensure the swelling or lump you mean is keloid or not have to go through a doctor's examination yes.
Liquid nitrogen is nitrogen in the form of liquid with a very low temperature. Liquid nitrogen is usually used in cryotherapy procedures, one of the benefits is to prevent or treat keloids. While salicylic acid is a drug that can reduce the thickening and hardening of the skin layer. Salicylic acid is often used in treating calluses, fish eyes and warts.
