Keloid: This could be a keloid or hypertrophic scar from the piercing. Sometimes several steroid injections are necessary to make it smaller or to get it to go away. Also, sometimes other treatments are necessary which might include excising the abnormality including the piercing site and surgically and repairing the defect. Sometimes post-op steroid injections are used, as well.
