Answer: Hello Jujhar,
Thank you for your enquiry.
Keloid scars occur when the skin produces too much of a specific protein, collagen, during the healing process, resulting in a lumpy appearance. Keloid scars can form from any trauma, such as bites, scratches, or wounds.
They can be difficult to remove, but depending on size, methods such as laser or cryotherapy have been proven to be effective. Surgical removal can also work, but this includes the risk of further keloid scarring during the healing process. If the scar is small enough, a cream such as Kelo-cote can also help to reduce its size further.
I don't offer cryotherapy or laser services at my clinic, but I can recommend private dermatology services at KIMS hospital in Maidstone or at the Spire Alexandra hospital in Walderslade.
Hope you found this helpful.
