An estimated 23 million adults in the UK have some sort of scar. Normal scars are preceded by injury, immediate in onset, flat and asymptomatic. These are the most common type of scar and are a result of the body’s natural healing process. Hypertrophic and keloid scars occur when the healing process is deranged.

This article, abridged and amended from an article previously published in JCN, outlines the differences between these latter types.
