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

So, basically, the other day my girlfriend & I were unergoing some sexual beheviour (She was quite vigeriously giving me a handjob) but it all felt fine, yeah. But I ve never actually stretched my foreskin back myself, whereas from her force, she managed to get it back quite some way.Since this (Yesterday, 17 hours ago) my foreskin has come back up, but only, this time it isn t completely covering my bellend, whereas it was before. 90% is covered, but the very top is visable, as if the foreskin is too.. floopy , or loose to cover my bellend back up again. It is literally just a circle shape at the top of my penis, and that is the only part which isn t covered up, but I feel like it should be. I m not really sure what to do/If I should be worried.I m 16 and not circumcised.

Hi Sir, I'm a 24 year old male facing hairfall problem since 3 years.. I take good diet and even i dont have hereditary hairfall issue, as my dad has very thick hair even at 62. Middle part of my hair got thinner, but worst thing is that I'm losing more hair on the front side and bald patches started to appear. My scalp gets oily by the end of the day and if i dont go for a head bath daily in the morning, i will lose more hair. To regain my hair, i try with hair oil massage every night..but that is when I lose maximum percentage of hair in the day. with this fear, from the past 6 months, i started using herbal shampoo. doesn't observe any difference. Fortunately, i don't have white hair. At this age, i cant afford for hair transplantation, please suggest me any solution by which i can regain my hair.
