Damaged skin: causes and symptoms
Skin typically becomes damaged due to a skin trauma. Some of these incidents- examples include sunburn, surgical wounds, deep cuts, and severe abrasions- can lead to the formation of thick scars and keloids.
Keloids are wide, thick scars, formed from fibrous tissue that generates after a lesion. Their formation follows two phases:
- Initially, they appear with an intense red colour and are smooth, hairless, and elevated.
- Subsequently they become rosy in colour and thicker in texture.
How to repair damaged skin
To avoid your skin becoming further damaged or becoming exposed to microbic contamination, you need to carefully treat even light wounds. To do so, it’s enough to follow a few simple steps:
- Carefully wash your hands prior to treating the wound
- Wash the wound and the surrounding area with saline solution and dab it with a sterile gauze
- Remove potential foreign bodies using sterilised tweezers
- Disinfect the wound
- Choose specific products: apply products that will help the scar to heal
