keloid_beauty02,

Keloids are basically just an overgrowth of normal scar tissue. While most patients do not seem to have any more problems with pain in them than with normal scars, they do have the capability to hurt, have a needle-like pain, or to itch without warning, although the degree of sensation varies from patient to patient.

The pain and itching is felt to be from the excess collagen fibers pulling on the normal tissues around them. The pins and needles like sensations that some patients have, usually comes from nerves within the skin that are trying to regenerate after being injured.


If the scar is a new one, the symptoms may subside once the scar has matured. If it is an old scar, and you are having problems with it, then you might want to see a dermatologist or plastic surgeon to see if there are any treatments for the scars.

Good luck.
