I never heard of the name before but upon researching Keloids I found that I have seen these on people before. I never thought of it as something unusual, some people get those bigger scars, some don't.

It seems to be a collagen disorder, but I like to call them differences instead of disorders. I know a lot about collagen disorders, but not to do with the skin like that, mostly in joints which causes weak joints and problems with inadequate collegen creation. This almost seems to be opposite what I study, I may be able to backwards apply some of my knowledge, but I don't know if it will work backwards, it may cause other problems.

Is this his only problem, the one keloid area? Maybe I could advise not doing risky stuff so he will not get cut too bad in the future, that would not be something a person would want to have on the face if you can avoid it.

This is way over my knowledge but it does make me curious somewhat. Antiimflamatory foods and ointments may be something to consider in the future, I am sure that you can find ways to keep the chance of this happening in the future down a bit since you know this happens in his case. Fixing this one is a little harder, if it has quit growing, then maybe as he grows it will stretch out and flatten a bit, leaving a less pronounced scar. My daughter got some stuff like that from here fish tank, it has corral and amnemities in it. Has he had his arm in a salt water tank at all?

Great minds think alike

I will go and get some of this remedy you speak of today and start with it this evening, there seems to be more popping up on his wrist i am really starting to wonder if this is indeed a keloid.

No he hasn't had any injuries in that spot, its really bizarre. It wasn't even a real cut, he caught his arm on the way out of the trampoline and it kind of just scratched the skin in that shape, and then the scar formed quite quickly, literally over a couple of weeks.

The more i read about these things does not fill me with confidence, he has a few cuts and bruises that have healed fine so hopefully this is a one off.


Did the doctor say it was a keloid scar? I'm not trying to patronize you but hypertrophic scars (I get those) can look like that and seem to develop very quickly. They'll grow for a few months or even up to two years but they get better and may flatten out quite a bit. Also, they are just easier to treat if you want to go that route. If it is a keloid scar, the earlier you see to it the better.





I appreciate any advice im so out of my depth its scary.

Well the general consensus is that it is a keloid, but i am not sure. You may be right as it has developed so quickly and is now spreading.

How long did it take you scars to start going down and did you use anything to treat them ?

The ones on the boy are certainly growing.

And, while I wasn't going to speculate on the specific cause of this scar at the outset, I will now. I'd bet the 'original wound' was a plastic thread puncture. Years ago, I worked in fiberglass and was prone ... got some little silver flashes where they once were as a memory.


Very interesting snarl, i had in the back of my mind it was the trampoline material that may have been the cause, which would be some synthetic plastic concoction. I wonder if some of the material has been caught under the skin and has caused the mutation of skin cells.

Although that doesn't really account for it spreading and that he now has a small dot on his wrist which the first i noticed was this morning.

He is booked into another GP this avo, and i have made an appointment with a dermatologist, sadly they cannot see him until the middle of march.

In the meantime i will try the potion that the lovely angelchumel and purplemer recommended.

This is also another route to take, certain foods do really affect us in different ways, i am not sure if you are familiar withDavid perimutter he has some great information, im reading brain maker at the moment .

Put as many flower heads as you can in and cover with oil.. Water bath for half and hour or so.. Leave to cool and keep as an infusion for about a month plus..

When you make the flower oil infusion.. make sure you shake it every couple of days and try and press the flowers to get as much oil out of them too.

Heat the oil infusioin again in a water bath and add about 10 percent bees wax this helps thicken it and turn it into a salve..

Good luck..

any problems send me pm..

Immortelle is to a scar, what Lavender is to a burn. I love it...in my top 10 oils.

I cut off skin tags all the time, well when I have one, OK twice. It doesn't hurt, and bleeds for about 5 minutes.

Now would I have the guts to cut that off? I think I would try it. Maybe ice it and go after it with a razor blade.

Yes, he would have to be a willing participant.

Then I would suggest trying some of the other remedies mentioned, I can't claim I know of any that will be successful.

No there is no guarantees but i can at least try the alternative path until i get to see the specialist.

If I develop a hypertrophic scar it will develop quickly, within a few weeks to a month and can continue to grow for months (in my case, but there are always variations). The growth would usually stop after two or three months, but it could take years for them to become flush with the surrounding skin. It occurred much more when I was a child and none of those scars are raised now; they are flush with the skin.

Either way, I would definitely see a dermatologist and see what they say. If it is a keloid earlier treatment is better.

Good luck.

some synthetic plastic concoction.

Stuff's fine on the skin unless it's sharp or pointy. Fiberglass is the same way ... and in some ways worse, because the threads can be extremely fine. They may not be as bad, because they aren't nearly as abrasive as those plastic fibers.

Anyway, sounds like your kid is young. They've got stretchy skin and that heals nice if the wound's not deep. He'll be fine as long as you get a derm doc to take care of it (as I saw below above in this case -heh heh-). Those treatments can be done at an extremely low cost. Ask for the cash price. Trust me.

I have read some of David Perimutters articles over the years. I kind of like the way he looks at some things. His stuff falls in place with some other people I follow. I check out what all these people say by looking at published research to determine ways to utilize this stuff. I like to check out everything to make sure it is right, that takes multiple windows open to compare info. I should get two monitors on my computer again, I had that for a while. My daughter uses four monitors, at her desk she has six but most times she just uses four. She uses them to compare stuff in the work she does. I was fine with two monitors, I don't need a whole wall of them. She also has work stations for about four other people at her office, she owns the business sorting and consolidating medical records for a big business.
