In brief: Treatment KeloidScar

Consult a plastic surgeon to discuss your treatment options for a keloid/hypertrophic scar -- typically these would be injection of corticosteroids into the scar vs.
Scar excision.

In brief: Stepwise to keloids

The approach to keloids is nearly the same no matter where they occur: pressure, silicone sheeting, steroid injections, posssible 5 fu injections, possible intralesional excision, possible radiation therapy as well emerging or investigational immunotherapy treatments.
