Hypertrophic & Keloid Scar

They Itch, and They Grow.

Scars come in many shapes and sizes, resulting from wound repair anywhere on your body. Now having a scar is not bad if it is small or located in an easy-to-hide area. But when it causes emotional distress, you may wonder how to treat them. Although they can look similar, hypertrophic and keloid scar are not the same.
A hypertrophic scar can be itchy, red, raised initially, and thickened. However, it remains within the boundaries of the original wound and gradually becomes flatter or paler. Unlike a keloid scar, it will itch and keeps growing, even after the wound has healed.
If you do not like how these two scars look or feel, do not hesitate to consult our experienced doctors for the best possible solution.
