Natural Remedies To Remove Keloids
Q: Are there natural remedies to remove keloids? – J. Horton
A: Keloids are scars that become enlarged due to abnormal growth of fibrous tissues. Here are few natural remedies you can try at home:
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.
Crush three or four aspirin tablets and add a small amount of water to make a smooth, thick paste.
Apply the paste on the scar, allow it to dry completely and then rinse it off by rubbing the area gently under water.
Pat the area dry and then apply some olive oil or tea tree oil.
Do this daily until the keloid is gone.
2.) 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.
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.
Clean the scar with water and apply the paste before going to bed. In the morning, wash the area thoroughly with lukewarm water.
Do this regularly for a month or two.
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.
Extract the juice from a fresh lemon and apply it on the affected skin area.
Leave it on for about half an hour, and then wash the area with lukewarm water.
Repeat the process at least once daily.
