Hi I got a nose piercing changed from a stud to a hoop and soon after a keloid formed I ve tried salt water rinses and saline solutions for about a month with no result Is there anything else I can try for example do aspirin pastes work at all before seei

No to aspirin pastes

If you really have a keloid, aspirin pastes will not work. Neither will any other creams, pastes, or potions. Non surgical treatment of keloids with injections of steroids, like Kenalog, may improve the keloid. If this does not work after several treatments, 6 weeks apart. Then surgical excision with possible radiation therapy or Kenalog injections may be needed.

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. Crushed aspirin...I'm afraid not.

Could a crushed aspirin paste reduce minor swelling of a bug bite?

Great question

Mosquito_bite
Crushed aspirin paste is used as a remedy for many things like wart removal. Unless there is an allergy to aspirin, it wouldn't hurt to give it a try. It is an anti inflammatory.

My daughter heard a topical paste of aspirin can help reduce inflammation of acne - I'm concerned about possible blood thinning effects - possible?

Acetylsalicylic acid

Blood
Aspirin (acetylsalicylic acid) is an old standby for acne & is the active ingredient at ~ 2% in most OTC face washes. It works by loosening old skin cells & opening blocked pores. I would be reluctant to make your own paste as the material in higher strengths is painted on warts to destroy them.(& would likely burn burn the skin)Skin application has negligible effect on the blood.

Is keloid curable?

Treatment available

Scarring
Keloid scars can be avoided with silicone sheeting and steroid injections. Once a keloid has already been established it can be excised and treated with subsequent steroid injections or low-dose radiation. Excision alone usually results in recurrence of the Kulik.

Dr. Bennett Werner answered:

How can aspirin work?

Complex

Aspirin
It is a prostaglandin inhibitor and platelet inhibitor which interferes with clotting, reduces inflammation, reduces fever, and reduces pain. Those are its major effects and there are other minor actions as well.
