Keloids

A keloid is a special type of scar. All wounds heal with a scar but a keloid scar is one that grows too much and can even become larger than the original wound. It can occur after minor skin damage and involve the areas outside the scar itself. The most common areas keloids scars develop are in the upper chest, shoulders and earlobes.

Risk factors include:

  • Darker skin
  • Young age,
  • Past history
  • Wounds under tension
