In brief: Surgery/Injection

There are many options to try to deal with this difficult problem that has a high recurrence rate.
Injections with steroids, surgical excision or radiation therapy are some of the options. Talk with a plastic surgeon in your area to try to figure out a treatment plan for your specific concerns.

In brief: Surgical excision

Surgical excision followed by immediate postoperative radiation prevents the recurrence of keloids.
Intralesional steroids may also be effective in preventing the keloid growth.
