The Risk Of Making Piercings If You Have A Keloid Tendency
Alodok, I want to ask about keloids. In some spots on my body there appear keloids, which initially only sweat the old stalks like acne and eventually enlarged into keloids. Most locations are in the shoulders, back, and stomach. Sometimes it can suddenly feel random random, and itching when rubbing with clothes that are somewhat rough. Can the keloid dock be removed or at least scaled down? Then what I want to ask you is, I plan to make a new piercing in my ear because the old piercing is almost closing so I find it hard to wear earrings. Is it risky to appear keloid doc? Please direct the doc 🙏 Thank you.

We understand the concerns that you feel.
Keloids are scar tissue that grows excessively during the wound healing process. Generally this can occur as a healing process that is less than perfect.
Not everyone can experience keloids. Often heredity greatly influences the onset of this condition. Keloids can be temporary or permanent, and vary in size from small to wide.
If you want to re-pierce the ears, this is permissible but still must be under the supervision of a doctor, especially a skin specialist. Because the risk of keloids may still occur in pierced wounds. Therefore, supervision and appropriate therapy are needed after the piercing action is done.
You don't need to worry because now there are various treatment options to reduce and eliminate keloids with drugs such as corticosteroids, lasers, radiotherapy or cryotherapy. Operative actions can be considered in certain conditions.
If necessary, have a direct discussion with a dermatologist to get more complete and relevant information. Thus the information that I can convey, hopefully helps
