The keloids are those scars which have been trouble makers for many years for now. These scars are those which have been seen on the body of men and women both in the same rate. They are nothing uncommon, and anyone of us could have one of them in our body. To start the discussion about the keloid scar, let’s start it from the beginning days of history. In those heroic days, battle scars were treated as one of the prized medallion and the more a man has them on his body, the more valiant soldier he is considered to be. The scars that were formed on their body are nothing but the amount of collagen that has coagulated at the wound site while it is still healing and have formed a mark. These marks can be like that of a rubbery lesion or a fibrous nodule. They form due to various reasons, like that of a continuous trauma to a particular area, or even over those chicken pox scars or even scratching or on the site of a pimple.
There has been history of the keloid scar, like in ancient Egypt; they were used for ornamentation of women. These scars if made intentionally over the body in a systematic pattern gives rise to designs and can be like those tattoos. There are incidents when those Egyptian women were seen with those scars on their body formed in a beautiful way. It is thus clear that the ancient Egyptians took this art to certain heights. These scars can grow in the young ones as their body is till in a state of growth. There are those Olmec people who also scarified themselves as ornamentation. So the history of these scars is quite elaborate and has got mane things behind it including those whip scars over the body of the slaves. About the treatment of these scars and the keloid formed over it they can be removed through surgery as well as through the modern process of laser treatments. But the scar treatments are totally a chance factor. This chance factor makes the whole thing quite complicated. The whole issue of scar treatments depends on the body of the person of whom the treatment is done. There are cases where the scars have grown forming larger keloids that those original ones after the surgery and the chance of that happening is about more than 50%.
