It is still unknown what the exact cause of keloid scarring is.
They can develop after surgery, after major skin trauma, or even after very minor skin damage such as is caused by chickenpox, minor scratches or vaccination sites. Strangely, they may also develop even if there's no obvious damage to the skin at all.
Keloids typically occur in younger individuals, often between the ages of 10 – 30 years of age. The tendency to keloid scar does run in families.
