, is it safe for pregnant women to get keloid injections (trilac – triamcinolone Acetonide) and use Sodermix ointment u0026amp; diprogenta? Because my keloid is very active and the size is now 3 normal fingers. Please hint, thank you very much
Hello Caterina Oei,
Keloids are scar tissue that can occur as a result of scars that can appear in almost any area of the body. Keloids themselves are benign but can cause itching and irritation and can increase in size. To make sure it is necessary to do an examination by a dermatologist to determine the treatment to be given. Keloid handling itself can be done in several ways, such as:
Surgery to remove keloids and then to minimize the risk of recurrence can be combined with other therapies such as steroid injections Corticosteroid injections into the lesions or keloids Cryotherapy or freezing keloid tissue with nitrogen Laser therapy Silicone gel Radiation therapy and others But in special circumstances such as pregnancy, of course not all procedures are safe . Injecting steroids themselves, in this case using drugs containing triamcinolone based on the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) triamcinolone drug category, may pose a risk to the fetus so its use needs to be supervised by a doctor. We recommend that you check with a dermatologist first for treatment that suits your condition, which is also safe for the fetus.
May be useful,
