Keloid Treatment Cream

by jake on June 18, 2012

A keloid is a type of scar which is as a result of an overgrowth of granulation tissue. It is a tough heaped-up scar that rises quite abruptly above the rest of the skin. It usually has a smooth top and a pink or purple color. Keloids are irregularly shaped and tend to enlarge progressively. Unlike scars, keloids do not subside over time.

So what’s the best way of getting rid of keloid? First is to get a cream that’s effective and very good in scar removal.

Keloid can be treated through use of a variety of creams available for treatment. There are various scar gels and creams which may help, but they are most effective against newly formed scars, and even then their effectiveness may be limited. The creams contain useful ingredients that help in the cure of keloids. This includes ingredients extracted from onion bulbs. Allantoin is another ingredient in the creams that can heal keloid. It helps with the growth of new tissue by helping to protect and sooth it. The other ingredient in creams used for treatment for keloid is heparin, which is most commonly used intravenously to prevent blood clots, but in the case of this gel, it is used for its anti-inflammatory and water retention qualities.

There are other over the counter creams that can be used in the treatment of keloid. Most of them use onion bulb extract (allium cepa), but another common ingredient found in many of the creams is silicone. As alternative to the creams, there are also silicone sheets that are stuck or taped on the affected area. You need to wear the sheets for several weeks to several months. However some experts argue that silicone sheets are more effective than cream based silicone creams. Remember there is no 100% cure for keloid, but it never hurts to do some research and if you get a cream that is at the right price, you can always give it a try. But they all contain the same ingredients. There are a lot of creams in the market that promise to completely remove the keloids.


Finally you can always go see your doctor for the best advice on the type of cream to use or better still see an expert – a dermatologist. He will most likely give you a lot of ways or techniques or even recommend a powerful scar removal procedure for you to be in.

About Keloids

Keloids come up on the areas of the skin where wounds have initially appeared. When the wound has already healed, it gets covered with something called type III collagen. After a while, the type III collagen is replaced by type I collagen. At the end of the day, the place so affected by this skin condition becomes rather rubbery and hard. The hardness is so much felt to the extent that the person affected may find it considerably difficult to even move his hands at the joints or wherever the Keloids formed. Aside the fact that this skin defect can make movement rater impossible, it can also be very itchy. The pain felt is something that mere words may not be able to describe.

Its Special Appearance

Keloids is not among the contagious group of skin conditions. It is completely non-contagious and aside this, it is completely benign. This means it will never lead to any problem on the skin of the person affected. Because of this, many individuals who are having it may not even bother to get it removed at all; since nothing like cancer will ever develop from it. But if not for the pain, no one will be bothering about it. When you see anyone attempting to remove Keloids, it is simply because of the pain. Its appearance on the skin can also make the skin look rater disfigured in that particular area. Another disturbing thing about this skin condition is that it can even expand beyond the region of the original wound.

Possible problems with keloids

It is true that Keloid does not have any problem and is benign. But there are time something can go awry. The area may get infected if something is not done to assuage the pain on time. When this occurs, the area covered by the skin condition becomes ulcerated.

How to treat keloids 

Several treatment methods had been used on Keloids. Some of them had given very great results, while other had resulted badly at the end of the day. A very good example of the treatment method that had been implemented is surgery. But this tends to have some negative effect on the Keloid; up to 50% of those who had surgery end up with the area of surgery redeveloping into Keloids.  In order to completely remove this possibility, laser had been used extensively and it had shown good sign of helping with the skin problem.
