In brief: Stepwise approach

Avoidance of injury, pressure, massage, silicone gel sheeting, steroid injections, 5fu injections, surgery and/or radiation therapy are used in the management of keloids (roughly in that lprogression).
Laser therapy is controversial.

In brief: Varies a lot...

Depending on the location and duration of the keloid, and whether it is a true keloid or hypertrophic scar. Treatments that have been effective alone or in combination include surgical removal, pressure treatment, steroid injections and low dose radiation.
