Perhaps hypertrophic scars and their difference from keloids should have been included. In short, a hypertrophic scar remains red, raised and thickened, so may be mistaken for a keloid, but it will eventually (over a year or more) soften, flatten and lose the redness. Keloids remain keloids. The distinction is important in ddiscussing treatment.
