Ilang taon na ang keloid mo?

Unfortunately, kung anong dali at bilis ng pagkakaroon ng sugat ay siyang tagal at bagal naman ng pagkawala ng peklat kung ito ay naging keloid.

Minsan, inaabot pa nga ng taon. At may mga instances pa na kahit isinailalim mo siya sa treatment, posibleng lumaki uli.

ANO BA ANG KELOID?

Ang keloid ay isang klase ng “raised scar” na mas malaki kesa sa sugat na pinagmulan nito.

Meron itong iba's ibang sizes at shapes. Sa earlobes, nagiging round at solid mass. Sa shoulder at chest, parang molten candle na nag-spread out sa scar area at nanigas. Sa mga elbows at knees, parang worm-like.

  • chickenpox or diseases that cause scarring of the skin.
  • tattoos or piercings

Corticosteroid shots can flatten them after a certain number of sessions depending on the size.

For larger keloids, they can be removed with some help from laser technology, and require weekly visits to the clinic.

It will flatten on its own eventually, but it will never go back to how the skin originally looked, so the best type of prevention is: iwasang magkasugat.
