Medic for Keloids

1 of 3

Keloids are scars that become enlarged due to abnormal growth of fibrous tissues. Skin injuries like acne, minor burns, bites, cuts, or scrapes can leave scars. Keloids form over time, when an excess amount of collagen grows in the scars. Generally, they do not cause pain, but sometimes they can be itchy.


Even though keloids do not pose a health concern, many people dislike having these enlarged, ugly scars. Some people opt for surgery, injections or laser treatment to remove them. Instead of paying for expensive treatments, there are some simple natural remedies that you can use to take care of your keloids at home for little cost.

Here are the top 10 home remedies for keloids.

1. Apple Cider Vinegar

A great home remedy for treating keloids is apple cider vinegar because it helps minimize the size and redness of the scar.

  1. Apply apple cider vinegar directly on the affected area and gently massage it so the vinegar is well absorbed into the skin.
  2. Allow it to dry for a few minutes, and then repeat the process in order to expedite healing.
  3. Do this several times a day for maximum results and continue this treatment for four to five weeks.

If the apple cider vinegar causes any skin irritation, you can dilute it with water. You can also use pure tea tree oil.


2. Baking Soda

Baking soda acts as an abrasive agent and helps exfoliate the skin. It can also be used successfully to manage keloids.

Baking Soda Home Remedy to Treat keloids
  1. Mix one part baking soda with three parts hydrogen peroxide to make a smooth paste.
  2. Apply the paste directly on the affected area to reduce inflammation and speed up the healing process.
  3. Do this three or four times a day depending upon the severity of the scar.

3. Lemon Juice

Lemon juice contains antioxidants and vitamin C that are very helpful in treating different types of scars, including keloids. After a few weeks of using this remedy, you should see significant improvement in the color, texture, appearance, and flexibility of the scar.

  1. Extract the juice from a fresh lemon and apply it on the affected skin area.
  2. Leave it on for about half an hour, and then wash the area with lukewarm water.
  3. Repeat the process at least once daily.

4. Aspirin

The same aspirin that you take for headaches and other health problems can also be used to treat keloids as it helps reduce the scar’s size and appearance.

  1. Crush three or four aspirin tablets and add a small amount of water to make a smooth, thick paste.
  2. Apply the paste on the scar, allow it to dry completely and then rinse it off by rubbing the area gently under water.
  3. Pat the area dry and then apply some olive oil or coconut oil.
  4. Do this daily until the keloid is gone.

5. Aloe Vera

Aloe vera is very good for the skin and can be used in the treatment of keloids. It will help reduce inflammation, keep the skin well-moisturized and heal damaged skin. It also helps prevent skin infections.

  1. Clean the scarred area thoroughly with lukewarm water.
  2. Apply fresh aloe vera gel on the scars twice daily.

6. Sandalwood and Rose Water

Sandalwood has many skin regenerating properties and rose water is a natural skin toner. Used together they can help prevent or reduce and lighten keloid scars.

  1. Make a thick paste of sandalwood powder and rose water. If you wish, you can also add some black gram to the paste. You can find black gram in an Asian supermarket.
  2. Clean the scar with water and apply the paste before going to bed. In the morning, wash the area thoroughly with lukewarm water.
  3. Do this regularly for a month or two.
