In brief: No easy treatment

A keloid is an excessively large scar. All scars are permanent.
Some keloids will respond to steroid injections if they are small. Some may require excision followed by pressure treatments some may even be treated with radiation after excision. Unfortunately there is a high recurrence rate for keloids.

In brief: No easy treatment

Treatments traditionally include surgical removal as well as injection with corticosteroids among others.
If your keloid is new, this is the best time to initiate treatment before it becomes larger. I would consider making an appointment with a dermatologist experienced in treating keloids as soon as you are able to do so.
