Keloids are scar tissues which grow at an excessive rate, even after the skin injury has been healed. They are mainly composed of collagen and they not only leave behind a giant scar on one’s body, but the scar can also be itchy and irritating. The various symptoms associated with keloids include the formation of a pink, red or flesh colored scar or lumpy or nodular surface of the skin. The causes of keloids include burns, acne, ear or any other piercings, chicken pox, surgical cuts, minor scratches, sites of vaccinations and traumatic cuts etc.

The person suffering from keloids needs apply these creams on the affected area, multiple times a day, for the creams to be effective. However, silicone is an expensive substance and so, the keloids removing creams containing silicone are expensive as well. Hence, these creams may not be within the budget of everyone.
