When damage occurs deep in the skin tissues it may result into keloid scar. Our bodies exhibit the capability of naturally healing wounds and on a similar mechanism an injured tissue in the skin is healed by our body. This however may cause formation of excess lesion in the aftermath. A keloid scar under such circumstances tends to stretch past the original margin of the wound over time. This kind of scars more often are as a result of surgery, physical damage, piercing, chickenpox and other skin infections. Keloid scars can hence be described as a discrepancy of the body healing process. To get rid of keloid scars therefore calls for appropriate means to ensure a suitable removal of such scars. There are available remedies for keloid treatment at home.
