Keloids can be treated with steroid injections, silicone dressings, pressure earrings, and surgical excision with radiation to reduce the risk of recurrence. See your dermatologist or plastic surgeon to decide which treatment. ...Read more

I have raised scar on nose which  spreads, visited 4 dermatologists, they said it is not keloid.They had no explanation why it happens.What could it be?

Biopsy.: If you have been to four different dermatologists, go to one more and request a biopsy to prove scar. You can get scars from acne that occurred several years prior. If that is the case, there are laser treatments for scarring. If it is spreading, that begs the question why--scars do not act in this way. Get a biopsy to get a definitive answer as to what is on your nose. ...Read more

Yes and probably not: You are probably right about the Keloid if you are familiar with them and you think it might look like one. It might be more likely to resolve without the foreign body in there. Keloids tend not to go away; they tend to be a problem. If this were my baby, especially if your family has tendency to "keloid" I'd take them out. ...Read more
