I had an ear keloid removed but there is still some keloid tissue within my ear. Is there are way to get rid of it?

Unfortunately: since a keloid is a overgrown "scar" remocing it often just "generates" another scar..especially in people who are "prone" to keloid formation! I would suggest you consult a Board Certified Dermatologist with an "interest" in this condition! Hope this helps Dr Z ...Read more

What cream will get rid of keloid scar tissue?

What cream will get rid of keloid scar tissue?

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.

What's the difference between scar tissue and keloid? Can ultrasound be used to reduce both? Are there any other ways to get rid of it? What can I do?

What's the difference between scar tissue and keloid? Can ultrasound be used to reduce both? Are there any other ways to get rid of it? What can I do?

Scars/ keloids: A keloid is a raised scar that grows beyond the original cut. The most common places for it are the earlobes and chest. Scar tissue is a normal part of the healing process. 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?

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

I got my infant her ears pierced 3 m ago. i noticed some scar tissue above one of the pierced earlobes.Can that be a keloid? Can it go away naturally?

I got my infant her ears pierced 3 m ago. i noticed some scar tissue above one of the pierced earlobes.Can that be a keloid? Can it go away naturally?

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

Keloid Rx: The safest approach is silicone tape/gel (myscaraway, from walgreens/online), steroid/bleomycin injections immunosuppressant/chemotherapyagent) only in pro hands, electron-beam radiotherapy, almost never excision unless radiotherapy can be guaranteed within 24hr after excision. Be very careful or it will be made worse by cutting it! close follow up for 2yrs+ to monitor for recurrence essential! ...Read more
