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

I was diagnosed with breast cancer last month and decided to have a bilateral mastectomy though the cancer was in my right breast. I was born with a deformed left hand but never really diagnosed for anyjthing. After my mastectomy the plastic surgeon told me that I have Polands Syndrome because I didn't have my left pectoral muscle although I have a breast a bit smaller than my right and that also explained my webbed left handfingers. I also have symptoms of horners syndrome on the left side of my face, drooping eye lid aand absence of sweat. Do you think the syndromes are all connected?
