What is a Keloid?

A keloid is a patch of excessive scar tissue that may form following a skin injury. Keloids generally form after a skin injury heals. For unknown reasons, some people produce an excess of dense, fibrous tissue at and around the site of injury. A keloid is abnormal because the scar extends above and beyond the site of the original injury, whereas normal scars remain confined to the site of injury.
