What Are Keloid Scars?
Keloids are firm, rubbery lesions that can range from pink to flesh colored or red to dark brown. They may be itchy, change in texture, and, in some cases, cause sharp pain. Keloids result from an overgrowth of connective tissue during wound healing that grows beyond the boundaries of the original wound. Unlike hypertrophic scars, they are unlikely to improve naturally with time.
