Keloids are raised overgrowths of scar tissue that form at the site where the skin has healed from an injury. In some cases, keloids occur without any injury. These are known as ‘spontaneous keloids’. Keloids are commonly seen on the breastbone, earlobes, face, upper chest and back. The main causes for a scar to become a keloid include acne, burns, chickenpox, ear piercing, tattoos, minor scratches, cuts from surgery or trauma, insect bites and vaccinations. However, it is not necessary that everyone with a scar will develop a keloid. Keloids are commonly observed in younger individuals, typically in the ages of 10 to 30. People with coloured skin such as Asians, Africans, Hispanics and those of Mediterranean descent are more prone to keloid formation and these scars are often seen to run in families. Keloid scars usually grow much larger than the original wound. Some keloid scars continue to grow, but they do not turn into cancer. Keloids usually do not need treatment as they are harmless. However, if they bother the individual with their unsightly appearance or are painful and itchy, then treatment may be sought. The conventional treatments to reduce the size of a keloid include corticosteroid injections, freezing, laser treatments, radiation and surgical removal. Homeopathy is an alternative system of medicine that aims to restore the complete health of the individual instead of just treating a health condition. Homeopathic doctors prescribe medicines on the basis of the symptoms displayed by each individual along with their lifestyle, hereditary factors, personality as well as the history of the disease. Hence, not every remedy suits everyone equally and it is important to consult an experienced physician before taking a homeopathic remedy. Some important homeopathic remedies for the treatment of keloids are Thiosinaminum, Nitric acid , calcarea fluorica, causticum, fluoricum acidum, graphites, radium bromatum, phytolacca decandra, sabadilla and silicea terra. Thiosinaminum is one of the most effective Homeopathic medicines to treat Keloids. This natural Homeopathic remedy is very strong and powerful enough to dissolve the scar tissue. It can be prescribed for the treatment of all kinds of Keloids irrespective Dose.--Inject under skin, or, into the lesion a 10 per cent solution in glycerine and water, 15-30 drops twice a week. In 3x daily.
