I wanted to ask about keloids treament, I have 3 keloids on my ears due to piercing.What should I go for please advice me ?
Not likely serious: This is either a hypertrophic scar or keloid and may benefit from pressure therapy and possible steroid injections with 5fu (fluorouracil) if unresponsive. If it is the former, it may be due to an allergy to one of the metals used and pure gold piercings tend to have a lower incidence. If it is a true keloid, you should avoid altogether. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Several options...: First, you need to make sure it is, in fact, a keloid. If it is, there are several options. We have had very good results with surgically removing the keloid and then performing a series of steroid injections directly into the operative wound starting about three weeks postoperatively. Other options include pressure treatment and low dose radiation. See a plastic or facial plastic surgeon. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

PISR: If you had a recent piercing and developed a lump it could be due to infection and in this situation see your doctor for treatment of the infection & avoid steroids. If your physician or plastic surgeon have told you that you have a true keloid then they will recommend pisr treatment sequence (pressure, injection, surgery, radiation) or a variation thereof.Steroid shots will not cause the recurrence. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Probably none.: A cream will most like not work. You will more than likely need to have the keloid injected with a steroid by someone trained in the use of this. I would recommend a dermatologist or plastic surgeon. Your PCP may be comfortable with this. If no response you will more than likely need to have this surgically removed. It may recur. Good luck! ...Read more
