Title: Review Article - Treatment of keloids and hypertrophic scars
Authors: Mutalik, Sharad
Keywords: Keloid, Hypertrophic scar, Therapy, Prevention
Issue Date: 31-Dec-2005
Publisher: Medknow Publications on behalf of The Indian Association of Dermatologists, Venereologists and Leprologists (IADVL)

Abstract: Clinicians always find it difficult to treat hypertrophic scars and keloids. Various treatment modalities are available. Intralesional corticosteroids, topical applications, cryotherapy, surgery, laser therapy, and silicone sheeting are the widely used options. Radiation therapy can also help in cases of recalcitrant keloids. Most recently, pulsed-dye laser has been successfully used to treat keloids and hypertrophic scars. There are no set guidelines for the treatment of keloids. Treatment has to be individualized depending upon the distribution, size, thickness, and consistency of the lesions and association of inflammation. A combination approach to therapy seems to be the best option.
