Every cut or injury to the skin leaves a mark. Scars vary, and factors like skin type and location influence their appearance. While faces and necks generally form inconspicuous scars, areas like the chest may develop hypertrophic scars or keloids, especially in individuals with darker skin.
Distinguish between hypertrophic scars, resolving over time, and keloids, aggressive scars that grow beyond the wound.
Hypertrophic scars appear initially red, raised, and occasionally itchy, and gradually flatten and pale over time.
Keloid scars are usually raised, hard, smooth and shiny. They can be skin colour, pink, red, purple, brown, or darker than the skin around them.
Pressure which can be from a bandage or a pressure garment which would be made of some sort of stretchy material such as Lycra or Tubigrip. This pressure should be applied day and night for many months or even years.
Usually in sheet form directly to the wound is thought by many to speed up maturation of the scar
The simplest is the application of a steroid containing tape (Haelan tape) which is worn day and night for extended periods. Strong steroids such as Triamcinalone can be injected into the scar itself. It is usually given as a course at 4 to 6 week intervals. Severe keloids may regress with this treatment but later recur requiring further injections.
