When the skin is wounded, scar tissue grows over the wound to heal and protect it. Extra scar tissue can grow and form keloids, which are smooth, hard growths.
Keloids can grow to be several times the size of the initial wound. The chest, shoulders, earlobes, and cheeks are the most usual places to find them. Keloids, on the other hand, can affect any area of the body.
Keloids aren’t detrimental to your health, but they can cause cosmetic issues.
Corns are areas of skin that have become stumpy due to friction or pressure. When you walk or wear shoes, they usually hurt. The inner core of corn can be hard or soft. Hard corns form on the top of the toes, while soft corns occur between the toes. Corns caused by ill-fitting shoes are generally reduced when the proper shoes are worn.
Keloids are the result of scar tissue proliferation. Keloid scars are typically larger than the original wound. It could take weeks or months for them to fully grow.
The symptoms of a keloid can include:
- a localized area that is flesh-colored, pink, or red
- a lumpy or ridged area of skin that’s usually raised
- an area that continues to grow larger with scar tissue over time
- an itchy patch of skin
While keloid scars may be itchy, they’re usually not harmful to your health. You may experience discomfort, tenderness, or possible irritation from your clothing or other forms of friction.
Keloid scarring can be caused by a variety of skin injuries. Among them are:
- acne scars
- chickenpox scars
- ear piercing
- surgical incision sites
- vaccination sites
An estimated 10 percent of people experience keloid scarring. Men and women are equally likely to have keloid/corn scars. People with darker skin tones are more prone to keloids.
Surgical excision of large keloids or older keloid scars may be necessary. After surgery, keloid scarring might reappear in a significant percentage of cases. The advantages of eliminating a large keloid, on the other hand, may exceed the risk of scarring after surgery.
Corn is a hardened and toughened area skin that develops as a result of excessive friction and pressure in a particular place. Although it is harmless, it causes discomfort by producing uncomfortable and irritated places in the body. It does not pose any health risk or harm to the body, although it can create painful blisters if left untreated in some circumstances. In such circumstances, inflammation might ensue, leading to problems.
Cryotherapy and cryosurgery are two different procedures. Treatment alternatives are becoming better. Cryotherapy requires many sessions spaced one week apart. It requires at least 6-8 sessions.
