best keloid treatment in nigeria

When it comes to Keloid treatment in Nigeria, the best approach is usually combination treatments. Some people get good results with multiple sessions of monotherapy while others would require multiple sessions of combination treatments to achieve maximum results.

What Causes Keloid?

A keloid is caused by excess collagen in the skin during healing. This results in the formation of raised abnormal scar tissues on the site of an injury which do not reduce in size but subsequently grow beyond the original margins of the scar.

Keloids are difficult to treat because of the high chances of recurrence. They should not be confused with hypertrophic scars, which are also raised scars but do not grow beyond the boundaries of the original wound and may reduce in size over time even without treatment.

Keloid Treatment In Nigeria – Available Options

  1. Silicone Sheets and Silicon Gels/Creams: Research shows that about 30% of raised scars had some flattening after patients used silicone gel daily for up to six months. Some silicone gels/creams come with instructions to use twice daily while others may be used once daily.

  1. Intralesional Corticosteroid Injections: An intralesional injection is done by giving the content of the syringe directly into the lesion being treated. In keloid treatment, these injections usually contain corticosteroids. A commonly used one is Triamcinolone acetonide.

Corticosteroids help shrink keloids while alleviating accompanying symptoms such as itching and pain at the site of the keloids. About 50-80% of Keloids shrink after being injected. However, most of these keloids tend to regrow after a few years.

To improve results and reduce chances of regrowth, most good dermatologists in Nigeria and around the world often add another keloid treatment to the management plan.

  1. Keloid Surgery:  This treatment involves surgically cutting out the keloid. While this is an available Keloid treatment in Nigeria and may seem like a permanent solution, nearly 100% of treated keloids return after this treatment. These keloids may return bigger than the removed ones as a result of the new injuries from the surgical incisions.

Some of the best dermatologists often treat patients with another keloid treatment to reduce the risk of a keloid returning after surgical removal.

  1. Radiotherapy: Radiation treatments have been demonstrated as one of the most effective methods of preventing recurrence of keloids especially when done after keloid surgery. Patients may begin radiation treatment immediately after keloid surgery, the next day or about a week later. Radiation may also be used alone to reduce the size of a keloid. However, results tend to be better when used after keloid surgery.  

Although postoperative radiotherapy has been used to improve the outcome of keloid treatments by reducing recurrence, this method of keloid treatment in Nigeria and even in Africa is still difficult. This is because there are few Radiotherapy machines and some of those available are not the standard for the treatment of superficial lesions like keloids.

  1. Intralesional Cryotherapy (Cryosurgery): When it comes to keloid treatment in Nigeria, this is relatively new and also not available in all medical centers just like radiotherapy. It is a treatment that allows for focused destruction of a keloid scar tissue from the inside using liquid nitrogen with minimal damage to the surface of the skin,

Intralesional cryotherapy is a safe and highly efficacious technique recommended for both clinicians and patients looking to minimize the appearance of keloids and the associated symptoms.
