  • We are still not quite sure what causes this type of scarring, but we do know the following:
  •  Dark skinned people are more susceptible to keloids than those with paler skin 
  • Wounds that are under pressure or get infected while healing are especially likely to develop into keloids as are burn and acne scars
  • Keloids are most likely to develop between the ages of 10 and 30 They are not caught from anyone else They carry no risk of cancer 
  • The tendency to scar in this way can run in families They can be caused by chickenpox, acne, minor scratches, surgical incisions, traumatic wounds, vaccination sites, burns 
  • Although keloid scars are not dangerous, they can be itchy and tender or even painful to touch 
  • They can develop after surgery, after major skin trauma, or even after very minor skin damage like acne scars
  • In people with dark skin they often occur in the beard area and on the scalp
  • The problem: Keloids are highly visible exaggerated scars that occur particularly in darker skin.
