Keloid or Keloid Scar or Cheloid

Homeopathic treatment

Keloids are a big cosmetic problem as they are ugly looking. The current treatment in the allopathic / conventional treatment is not completely successful and may not work at all. The treatments available in the allopathic / conventional method are:

  • Surgery: This is risky, because cutting a keloid can trigger the formation of a similar or even larger keloid. Surgery is not a good option because the scar formed from surgery may grow into another larger keloid.
  • Laser: The pulsed-dye laser can be effective at flattening keloids and making them look less red but several treatment sessions may be needed. This is very costly and doesn’t result in complete removal.
  • Cryotherapy: Freezing keloids with liquid nitrogen may flatten them but often darkens the site of treatment.
  • Fluorouracil: Injections of this chemotherapy agent, alone or together with steroids, have been used for treatment.
  • Injections: Local injections of corticosteroids are also employed in the treatment. But this also rarely helps the patient.

There is no end to the useless procedures available in the conventional or allopathic treatment which are at times really dangerous.

In contrast homeopathy offers a promising role. You can sometimes get rid of the ugly looking keloids with the help of miraculous doses of minute medicines.

In homeopathic treatment no surgical procedure is required. No injections are given. No creams or lotions are applied. Only oral medications are given.

After starting the remedies, the keloids start to shrink slowly. Continued treatment may slowly restores the normal skin condition.

Tendency to the recurrent formation of keloids can also be removed with the proper medicines.

In a three year project from 2000-2003 by the Department of Health and Family Welfare and the department of AYUSH for comparative study between homeopathic and allopathic treatment of keloids has shown that homeopathy is very effective.

Homeopathy is safe, free from side effects and an economical treatment.

What is keloid or keloid scar or cheloid

Keloids can be considered to be "scars that don't know when to stop."

A keloid, sometimes referred to as a keloid scar, is a tough heaped-up scar that rises quite abruptly above the rest of the skin. It usually has a smooth top and a pink or purple color. They are irregularly shaped and tend to enlarge progressively. Unlike scars, keloids do not subside over time. These may itch and be painful, and some keloids can grow to be quite large.

They are overgrowths of fibrous tissue or scars that can occur after an injury to the skin. In individuals prone to keloids, even minor traumas to the skin, such as ear piercing, can cause them. They can occur anywhere on the body, but they are most common on the earlobes, upper back, shoulders, and chest.

Keloids should not be confused with hypertrophic scars, which are raised scars that do not grow beyond the boundaries of the original wound.

They are equally common in women and men, although at least in times past more women developed them because of a greater degree of earlobe and body piercing among women. They are less common in children and the elderly.

Causes

  • Keloids may occur from various skin injuries as surgical incisions, traumatic wounds, vaccination sites, burns, and chickenpox.
  • Wounds that are under tension while healing, or which get infected, are particularly likely to form keloids, as are burn and acne scars.
  • If someone in your family has keloids then you are at increased risk of get affected by it.
  • Another main cause of keloid is skin trauma i.e. skin or muscle tension (the upper arm and back) seem to contribute to its formation.
  • Exposure to the sun is also responsible in the formation.
  • A deficiency or an excess in melanocyte hormone (MSH), decreased percentages of mature collagen and increased soluble collagen, are among the main causes.
  • Keloid's formation may be due to the piercing of body parts, such as the earlobes and abdomen.
  • Dark skinned people get keloids much more easily than those with a paler skin. They are especially common in people with black skin.

Signs & symptoms

  • The formation of dome shaped scar which extends beyond the injury.
  • The red or dark color patches may be seen.
  • The burning sensation, itching, ulceration, restriction of movement and so on are also seen.

*Dr. Rohit I am a keloid sufferer since my mid thirties. I have them on my chest and breast for more than 20 years now. I have tried already all different treatment like crea, herbal, steroid injections, laser but still have the pain, itching and pain without any change. In fact they are increasing in size and number. They become worse during winters and by eating prawns and grapes.

I also have high blood pressure, dyslipidemia. I do not have much thirst for water. I have allergy to prawns.

After 2 months of treatment Just to give you an update about my treatment. Treatment has been fantastic, noticed that my keloids are getting softer and less itchiness. So far I am very happy with the progress. The scars are noticeably softened and there is smoothness of the skin.

After 4 months of treatment Hi Dr. Jain so far I am very happy with result of your wonderful remedies. Most of my keloids have flattened by 30 percent. Do you think I should have another one full treatment.

= I am not sure how long I have had a Urethral Stricture and did not notice it until a year and a half ago when I started having trouble urinating. I had Internal Urethrotomy surgery a bit over a year ago and the symptoms went away until recently. The stricture is back and I am having trouble urinating again. The stricture is most likely caused by scarring.
