Is it safe to use silicone gel/sheets or vitamin E oil for scar treatment while breastfeeding? will either help with a keloid?

In brief: Safe but ineffective

While these are indeed safe to use while breastfeeding, spend the money buying a toy or cute outfit for your new baby as they will not be very effective in treating keloids.
See a dermatologist for more appropriate options for your keloids.

In brief: Will not help keloid

Keloid is very hard to treat and needs the expertise of the dermatologist.
Unlikely the above treatments will fix keloid
