Ear keloid

Keloids grow bigger here. Surgery mostly distorts shape of ear pinna. Non surgical combination protocol not only shrinks keloids but maintains natural ear shape.

Shoulder keloid

Old BCG vaccine scar can turn many years after into a keloid. Traction is a trigger factor.



Face keloid

Face is rich in hair and oil glands both of which are trigger factors. Keloid in mustache and beard needs urgent attention. Steroid cause acne and worsen keloids here.

Scalp keloids (AKN)

Acne on back of neck and in scalp tend to evolve into keloids. They are called Acne Keloidal Nuchae or AKN. It may need a complete removal of affected scalp

Neck Keloid

Neck movement and beard hair are trigger factors here. Burn scars turn into keloids on neck. Beard hair removal with laser is often essencial.

Bypass surgery keloid

CABG surgery has deep wound till bone and mostly results into keloid. Combination protocol with trigger factor management relives pain instantly.

Chest keloid

Male chest has hair and acne while female have traction due to breast weight. Trigger factors management is most crucial in this area. Laser hair reduction is adjuvant treatment for this area.

Pubic keloids

Pubic area has hair and is oily. Hair follicles worsen keloid.




Can keloids be cured by surgery?

Absolutely No. Because Keloids are known to occur at the site of Injury. In fact Keloids develops at the site of surgical wounds. May be bypass surgery wound or any other wound can trigger Keloid.

So the excision or removal of Keloid through surgery is not the treatment protocol. Your body is 100% prone to have recurrence of Keloids at that site. A lot of places it is practiced to perform surgery of Keloids followed by radiotherapy which is certainly a dangerous option because the radiotherapy is itself a risky which can cause skin cancer. Only role of surgery is when there are lots of hair present at the site of Keloid or if there is a lot of tension that is causing pain. Just to release the tension sometimes we need to separate the bands of keloids which is the limited option used as a surgery.

What are aggravating factors in keloid?

Though the basic genetic defect of Why Keloids occur is unknown. However, we are now aware of various factors that can trigger keloids. Can also be called as aggravating factors which can worsen the keloids. Which are they?

a) Excess hair in and around the wound/keloids

If keloid occurs on your chest and if it is hairy, please be aware that the above factor can worsen the keloid. This is because the hair follicles can be trapped into Keloids which will in turn irritate the keloids from beneath which will have the expansion effect.

b) If your skin is oily and prone to get pimples, your body can get new keloids on neck, shoulders and back.

I am in army, I was travelling to Srinagar by train during which I got stuck with electric shock of 25000 kw due to which I got 65% burn all over my body. These burn marks led to keloid all over my body. I visited several doctors / hospitals for my keloid treatment but all in vain, which led me into depression. Once I was going through YouTube regarding same then I came across Dr. Niteen Dhepe's Skincity. I visited this clinic in September 2021, undergoing my keloid treatment here since then and uptil now I have got 80% improvement. I am very satisfied with the treatment being provided herein Skincity. And I would like to highly recommend everyone with any such problems to direcly visit Dr. Niteen Dhepe's Skincity😊

Why To See Dr. Niteen Dhepe with steroid-free Combination Approved.

Genetics
Keloid has very much diverse and varied presentations. It may present as a single or multiple, discrete or confluent , thin linear lesions or large giant nodular patches. This variety of presentations hints at complex and multi-gene inheritance. Those having a mutation (change) in a single gene may have single or less severe keloid while those with multiple faulty genes may show more aggressive pattern of keloids. Specific genes are reported in Chinese and Taiwan population but larger studies are required to know which genes are at fault in each population. Such studies in India are missing and skincity is planning to take up one genetic study on Indian pattern of inheritance.

No To Surgery

Say No to Surgery

Whether keloid should be operated or not is an area of great controversy. Keloids not only re-occur after surgery, but often are often bigger in size and much harder to treat.

In first place The onset of a keloid is triggered by wounding of the skin. In surgical keloid removal, a much bigger injury is induced by the surgeon. This new and larger injury will obviously result into formation a much larger keloid. The risk of recurrence after surgery for certain keloids such as chest wall, shoulder keloids is near 100%. Local injection of steroids or chemotherapy or radiation after surgery may reduce the risk of recurrence of certain keloids. These interventions have their own limitations and side effects.

Say NO to Steroids

Historically most common treatment used in past for keloids is steroids only. It can produce excellent results in short period but does not affect keloid progression. In fact most of the keloids which are slowly progressing become more aggressive after injection therapy.

Steroid creams if used in wrong potency will cause either skin atrophy in surrounding skin. It induced acne and folliculitis in and around keloid. These follicular inflammation and infections act as trigger for growth of same keloid and occurrence of new keloids at periphery.
