Keloid: Dear meerkat88720, keloids are removed surgically. Often treated with steroid injections before and after removal to try and prevent them from returning. I would recommend avoiding any other piercing as this could happen again.

BPPV: Dear susan, when there is a spinning sensation that lasts for seconds at a time when you move your head this is often secondary to benign paroxysmal positional vertigo.
