Summary about Scars From Injury

Scars form as a result of your skin's healing process after it has been cut or damaged. The skin heals itself by producing new tissue that pulls the wound together and fills in any gaps caused by the injury. Scar tissue is primarily composed of a protein known as collagen. Scars appear in a variety of shapes and sizes. Scarring can result from cuts, which are the most common type of injury. However, scrapes and burns can also leave scars. Scarring is more common in injuries in which the skin is cut and crushed or otherwise damaged. If clean cuts are washed out and treated to avoid infection, they can heal very quickly.

Symptoms of Scars From Injury

Following are the symptoms of scars from injury;

  • Inflammation (swelling)
  • Redness
  • Itchiness
  • Throbbing
  • Sensitivity
  • Reduced range of motion
  • “Creaky” sounds or sensations.

Causes of Scars From Injury

Hypertrophic scars can result from;

  • Burns 
  • Insect bites
  • Acne
  • Chickenpox
  • Piercings 
  • Tattoos
  • Surgery

Treatment

There are numerous scar treatment options available, but not all of them are effective for everyone. It is critical that doctors explain the limited efficacy of these treatments and set reasonable expectations for people who are dealing with scars. Among the treatment options are:

  • Topical
  • Injectable
  • Cryotherapy
  • Radiotherapy
  • Mechanical therapy
  • Laser therapy

Preventive Measures of Scars From Injury

  • The most important rule for scarring is to avoid it in the first place. People at risk of developing abnormal scars should avoid elective surgery whenever possible and treat conditions that can cause scarring, such as acne.
  • Surgery is sometimes required. Itching and pain may occur at the site of the scar. Other scars can make it difficult to move. The appearance of scars may cause emotional and psychological distress in some people.
  • Doctors can prescribe treatments to lessen the appearance of scarring, but they must also address the psychological impact and physical limitations that scarring can cause.
