You can try Tea Tree Oil. Or cortisone cream. or a shot of cortisone. sometimes they require surgery. i had a tiny one on my industrial and i kept putting tea tree oil on it and it went away.

you probably looked this up by now though.

I didn't, I seriously don't wanna see those pictures. One of my friends reccomended steroids, but doesn't know exactly what kind I should use, and fucked if I'm gonna waste money on a GP.

i had a tiny keloid on my tragus, and the nurse i spoke recommended Bactine (the gel, not the spray) and putting a hot wet towel on it. it's weird, but it worked perfectly.

and yeah, tea tree oil might do the trick too.

I googled it....

Fuck, I'm hungry.

silicone gel/bandages in combination with corticosteroids cream/injections should work. if it's real aggressive, you can get a laser treatment, or surgical resection, but in that case you have to treat it afterwards with silicones & corticosteroids too. whatever you do, get the treatment as soon as possible after the keloid appears. gives you the best results.

this was in case you read this sooner than your PM.

Uh... SC injections? What size needle should I use? I'm definitely not going to a fucking doctor.

I just read your PM. it's not keloid. if it's painful, swollen & red like you just described, it's an infection. try long, hot baths with biotex, or soda if you don't have biotex. biotex would be better, though. where exactly is the ..'thing'?

Eyebrow, it got busted open ages ago and the scar healed up fine and now it's going all ouchy and inflamed.

....that's a bit difficult to hold in a biotex bath. *cracks up* I was afraid it was something unpractical like that. try holding on a wet towel with biotex & cleaning it with alcohol.

Okay.... erm.. what's biotex?

11-25-2005, 06:37 AM

Silicone Gel should do the trick.

11-25-2005, 01:26 PM
no, because it isn't keloid.

Silicone Gel should do the trick.

Actually it does but I don't think during infections. It's to make scars fade a bit. And it works.
