The treatment for this is intra lesional steroid injections. Also apply Silicon gel sheet on the area and keep it tied there for at least 8 hours daily.You need to do this daily for at least 6 months. Silicon gel sheets are available in market. On the thigh area you can apply oint fluticasone twice daily. This will give you relief. Let me know if you have any other doubts. Thank you

Brief Answer: Details below Detailed Answer: Hello Keloid means an over growth of skin tissue. You can see your skin surface is very uneven like blebs and dark. The raised areas are called as keloid. Intra lesional injections can be given by a dermatologist. It is given once a month. In this fine needle is used to inject a steroid solution in the skin. This softens the skin. Yes silicon gel sheets are available in big medical shops. Feel free to ask any other doubts. Thank you
