When there is a wound on the skin, which is injured, a fibrous tissue or a scar tissue forms around it to protect the wound. This tissue is smooth and is larger than the wound itself, and is termed as keloids.
They are found on the chest, shoulders, earlobes, and cheeks, although they can affect any part of the body.
What causes it?
Surgical incisions or vaccination sites.
Itchy patch of skin.
Area around a wound that becomes flesh coloured, pink or reddish.
Lumpy or ridged area of skin that’s usually raised.
An area that continues to grow larger with scar tissue over time.
