Why i still have keloid on my chest even after surgery ?
Hi i have a kelloid on my chest very visible at all time as it is very high close to the neck. It started with a birth mark and as it grew bigger it started paining and formed a kelloid. Ive had a surgery done 10 years ago it appeared again, then laser treatment 7 yrs ago it is a bit flat but red and highly visible.. Kindly suggest
Keloid is such a thing the more you try to meddle with the aggressive it becomes. Better to neglect it. Some have tried injecting steroids and claimed success to a certain extent. Please do consult your plastic surgeon.
