welcome to healthcaremagic
if it is true keloid it is difficult to treat
consult surgeon/plastic surgeon and get a check up
be explained about the condition
there are treatment like intra keloidal excision and others
keloids are known for recurrence
your doctor will guide you and do accordingly

Dermatologist Dr. Bharat Chawda's  Response
Hi!,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

Keloid means claw like i.e. it has a tendency to spread like a claw.
The only option is injections .Creams or surgery have no role to play here.A combination injections of steroids with 5 flurouracil with hylase injection works best.This would not only stop the progression of keloid but also suppress the lesion.These injections you would require once in 3 weeks .A total of 3-4 such injections would be enough to suppress it.
Apart from this I've have done lasers also in keloid with variable results .That too requires multiple sessions at monthly interval ,but is very costly.The laser used in such cases is PULSE DYE LASER(PDL).

We see such cases every day in our practice ,so please visit a dermatologist, who are specialist in all skin care and ask for the remedy.
Don't ever go for any surgery for keloid,it will double the lesion.

Hope I have answered your question.
regards,
Dr.chawda

Hi Doctor, this is James aged 30 years. I have undergone Hair transplantation on 29th Aug 2013. I have baldness in the front and on the crown part. After transplantation, i started using Mintop forte as recommended by my Doctor who has done the transplantation. He gave Finax 1mg for one month.

Question is,

1. How long does it take to see the complete results of hair transplantation?

2. How long should i continue to use the Mintop Forte oil. (I am using 5% solution twice a day).

3. Any diet recommended for good hair growth.



Thanks in advance.

My nephew, 8years old had an internal injury on his right kidney. Doctors did a surgery on his tummy to remove the blood from inside. after 2 weeks the kid started complaining on pain in the tummy. after an ultra sound examination, doctors found that haematoma around the right kidney had increased & there was free fluid around the haematoma and in the pelvis.



- Is there any reason to remove the kidney?

- What treatment should he be given?
