After surgery, the skin cells spread rapidly to heal the scar. In unusual cases, these cells spread rapidly and form keloids. Even if it is a small surgery also, it may lead to keloids. If you get keloids for one time in your life, then you are easily susceptible to it.
- Blisters – Blisters are the small bumps which are developed on the different parts of the body. These blisters are filled with pus, watery liquid, blood. Sometimes these blisters leave a scar behind them which leads to keloids due to the rapid multiplication of cells. These cells may grow beyond the original blisters and look embarrassed.
- Acne – Keloids may arise in the place of small acne. Actually, when the acne is formed, whatever may be the size, it will take some time for the skin cells to heal.
