All About Keloids: Symptoms, Causes, Prevention, And Treatment

Keloids are lumpy scars that grow larger than the original injury. Age (between 10 and 30), ethnicity (Asian, African, or Hispanic), and a family history of them are risk factors. Silicon gel sheeting, steroid injections and tapes, surgery, and natural remedies can be used to treat them. Proper wound care, not exposing injured skin to the sun, using a silicon sheet or pressure garment may prevent them.

Natural Remedies To Get Rid Of Keloids

A keloid is a thick, irregular scar that rises above the skin level due to an overly aggressive healing response to a wound. To help heal it naturally, apply a paste of fresh turmeric+garlic, or onions on the affected area. Leave it on for about 15 mins; wash off and moisturize with coconut oil or shea butter. You can also try ayurvedic formulations of brahmi or gotu kola.
