Keloids are formations of scar tissue that grow because the body defends itself due to trauma or surgical incisions. They are generally non-painful and contain no substance (they do not leak, pus, or bleed). Keloids can be treated with tea tree oil and other measures. Medical treatment or surgery is also a measure to get rid of keloids.
How can you tell if you have a keloid?
Non-keloid growth: If it hurts, seeps, oozes pus, or bleeds, it is not a keloid.
Sebaceous cyst: A closed sac of cheese-like or oily material.
You will need:
- Liquid antimicrobial soap
- Liquid antibacterial soap
- Non-iodized sea salt
- Shot glass or medicine cup
- Tea tree oil
- Cotton balls
- Distilled or bottled water
Step 1. Wash hands with antibacterial or antimicrobial soap.
Step 2. Use only antimicrobial soap on the infected area.
Step 3. Apply a warm compress on the infected area for 5 minutes. The heat will soften the area, allowing treatment and easier passage into the body.
Step 4. Mix 1/8 teaspoon of non-iodized sea salt with warm water and tea tree oil and soak on the area for 5 minutes.
The warm water will again allow the skin to absorb the treatment. Repeat this process daily until you notice positive results. For more troublesome areas, contacting a physician is advised. Any allergic reaction to tea tree oil should be discontinued and followed up with a doctor.
