How do you get rid of a keloid?
It depends on the keloid location. If the keloid is present on the earlobe, I would try steroid injections for a few months and see if that helps. If the keloid is too big, I would say have it surgically removed. Once the keloid is removed and the skin have been rejuvenated, apply a pressure earing. Pressure earings will help the keloid not come back. Theyre is a matrix going on in the earlobe, and applying pressure stops the collagen from over occuring and helps the tissue become parallel with the good skin. If the keloid is somewhere on a flat surface where pressure devices are unavailable, then, again, try steroid injections and/or have it cryo-surgically removed.
