Nothing can be done for keloids, they come back it seems. If you have more problems get them operated that is the best thing to do. I too had on the chest. I am a model I had to shave the hair on my chest now I am getting them operated. Worried when will they come back. I am using the hair remover as suggested my doctor.

I m a 20 yr old male and I have severe keloid scarring on my chest region,shoulders and back. I was diagnosed with severe acne at 18 both on my face & chest. The doc prescribed steroid like drugs to supress it as I used to bleed in the chest region with a nasty mixture of pus and blood. I took them for like 6 months and the bleeding stopped but I was left with small keloids on my chest region. The doc recommended laser treatment saying it would significantly reduce the scarring. But all that treatment and the cash spent on the laser thing was fruitless, coz my keloids have gotten worse and are spreading and joining up with the smaller ones to produce larger nastier keloids which also give off a horrible stench. I have no idea what to do as it seems that it a incurable problem. It has hurt my social life very badly as I cant just wear a tshirt anymore but have to wear an extra layer of clothes underneath so that the scars don t show.
