Keloid and hypertrophic scars are both aggressive local lesions, which tend to recur, causing physiological and psychological distress. Many forms of therapy have been proposed. The goal is to control the overproduction of collagen in the early stages and to enhance maturation. The most advocated types of therapy are hormonal, pharmacological, surgical and mechanical. The purpose of this study is to compare the efficiency of the hormonal, mechanical and pharmacological types of therapy represented by the use of triamcinolone, salazopyrin, and coltapaste.
