Allanderm-T - can it help with keloids?

Responses (1)

Allanderm-T contains balsam Peru, castor oil, and trypsin.
Balsam Peru increases blood flow to a wound area, and also helps fight bacteria.
Castor oil prevents skin cells from breaking down, which aids in wound healing.
Trypsin helps shed damaged skin cells.

The combination of balsam Peru, castor oil, and trypsin topical (for the skin) is used to treat bed sores and other skin ulcers. This medication can help promote healing and relieve pain caused by these conditions.

Keloids are the excess growth of scar tissue at the site of a healed skin injury. Allanderm-T is more helpful when used during the healing process, not after a scar has formed.

Keloids often do not need treatment. They may be reduced in size by:
* Corticosteroid injections
* External pressure
* Freezing (cryotherapy)
* Laser treatments
* Radiation
* Surgical removal
