A keloid is raised scar tissue that forms over a skin injury when the injury heals. They can feel rubbery, look shiny, and range in color from pink and red to black and dark brown.
Along with being unsightly, keloids can be itchy and moderately painful. However, compounded scar therapy medications can relieve this itchiness and pain while also smoothing the scar.
Topical medications can include a mix of caffeine, vitamin A, coconut, corticosteroids, and antihistamines. Together, these can help treat the keloid symptoms for a positive therapeutic outcome.
