The Caesarean Scar Is Black?
I want to ask, why do my faults become red and black?
Hello Nurvia, thank you for asking.
When the skin is injured, whether it is an injury due to an injury or a wound caused by surgery, tissue damage will occur. The body will respond to tissue damage by regenerating damaged cells with new cells and closing the wound with a pile of connective tissue (also called scar tissue). The bigger and deeper a wound, the greater the amount of scar tissue formed. This scar tissue will be re-absorbed by the body, so that the scar shrinks or is barely visible. However, in some people, scar tissue does not shrink, instead it grows wider and bigger, accompanied by a change in color becoming darker. This condition is called keloid.
It is not possible that you are currently experiencing keloids in a cesarean section. To be sure, you should consult a doctor. Keloids are generally larger than the wound, blackish or reddish, sometimes accompanied by itching or pain. The doctor will assess the condition of your scar and determine whether it is keloid or not. If it is a keloid, then the action can take the form of keloid removal or injection of steroids into the base of the keloid. However, the results of his actions are different for each person. In some people, keloids will reappear. Keloids are not dangerous, just that they often cause aesthetic problems.
Hopefully this answer can be useful. Regards.
