A keloid is an abnormal type of healing response in which the scar tissue overgrows beyond the margins of the wound. These often appear as hard, inflamed lumps that are itchy or tender. Common locations include the back, chest, or shoulders, the ears after ear piercing, or in C-section scars of the lower abdominal area.  The proper treatment of a keloid depends on its location, size and thickness. Various treatments include cortisone injections, lasers, special wound dressings or creams, and surgical removal.
