I had a bike accident and i had a very bad wound on my hand. As the wound was too deep, it healed with a scar ( kelloids ). It looks so bad that i cannot show it to people.

Keloid is such a thing the more you try to meddle with the aggressive it becomes. Better to neglect it. Some have tried injecting steroids and claimed success to a certain extent. Please do consult your plastic surgeon.
