Hello,

Keloids are not harmful but they may be upsetting to you. However, the best treatment is Cryotherapy & Laser therapy. The other possible treatments are wearing silicone sheets or gels, pressure treatment, corticosteroid shots or removal by surgery.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Nupur K, General & Family Physician
