Abstract: Keloids are a common skin disorder with significant morbidity. Itch and pain are common symptoms that affect up to 80% of patients. First-line treatment is repeated intralesional corticosteroid injections, which are painful and prone to recurrence of lesions. In a previous study, we observed that solid microneedles exhibited contact-dependent inhibition on cultured keloid and normal skin fibroblasts, in the absence of drugs.
