Honey is a natural humectant that heals and moisturizes the skin. This is why honey is highly recommended for the treatment of keloids. Regular application of honey over a few weeks can solve the problem of keloids.
Apply fresh honey on the scar and massage the area gently to improve blood circulation and prevent the accumulation of dead skin cells.
For best results, use Tualang honey, which is made by bees from the Tualang tree. This particular honey can decrease the number of proliferated cells in keloids, thus reducing the appearance of these scars.
Garlic prevents the excessive fibroblast proliferation that can lead to keloids, making it a good home treatment for these types of scars.
- Apply garlic oil directly on the scar.
- Leave it on for 10 minutes and then wash the area thoroughly.
If garlic oil is not available, you can use crushed garlic cloves. If the garlic oil or crushed cloves cause burning or irritation, immediately wash the area with lukewarm water.
