Keloid and hypertrophic scars

What they are:

Keloid and hypertrophic scars are thickened areas of scar tissue.

They are firm, rubbery lesions that may itch intensely at times.

Treatment:

No single therapy is best for every keloid or hypertrophic scar. Therapies can include topical medications, compression, laser, and treatments with Botox, and prescription or even over-the-counter creams. 

Other therapies that seem to be effective include phototherapy, growing new blood vessels, and interlesional injections.
