If you truly have a keloid, there is no cream that will remove it. Keloids must be surgically removed and then aggressively prevented. Options for post-operative prevention include scar massage, silicone sheeting, steroid injections and radiation for severe keloids.

There are no creams that will eliminate a keloid scar. Corticosteroid injections may soften the scar, decrease scar size, and/or improve symptoms associated with the scar; but the scar will still be present. Scar excision will remove the keloid. The resulting scar should be followed closely during healing and maturation to ensure the best result and minimize the risk for recurrence.
