A 34-year-old member asked:
can you tell me some good treatment for keloid scaring, but is there any evidence that solu-medrol (methylprednisone) i.m can help reduce the look of them?

Many treatments....: There are many treatments for keloids: surgical removal, usually accompanied by steroid injection postoperatively, low dose radiation, and pressure (usually for earlobe keloids in combination with surgery.) We have had good luck with surgery and steroid injections and that is generally my recommended treatment. See a board certified plastic surgeon to discuss the options in your case.
