Keloids scar treatment

Postby danielliu8 » Mon Aug 31, 2009 11:17 am

Hi,

I am 46 years old male, I have a big Keloids scar on my chest for about 10 years. Bothers me very much.

I searched online, but did not find any effective way to treat big Keloids scar on chest. Many scar cream products work fine on arms, legs, but not on chest.

Anyone have success experiences to treat big Keloids scar on chest?

Thanks for all your input!

Hello Danielliu8,

You have asked a great question and one that I am sure lots of people want to know the answer to! I am sorry to hear about your scar but we do have some amazing products here at MMH that I think will be able to do the trick.
The following silicone sheet is great for the chest area because it is large. Additionally, it can be cut to fit the specific area in question. This sheet can be used for three months and in between uses you can rinse it in the sink with water and then re-use it as the sticky will last for up to three months.
Scar Fx Silicone Sheett - 10" x 12" (w/Self Adhesive Side)

Scar Fx Silicone Sheet (w/Self Adhesive Side) is medically proven in helping reduce the appearance, size, height, thickness, and color of scars for all skin types and color. Scar Fx works well on both new and old scars regardless of the age of the scar, and can be used on all types of post-surgery scars, hypertrophic and keloid scars, and other scar types caused by injury, trauma, and burns. Made with all natural, soft, flexible silicone that contours easily to any part of the body, Scar Fx is an inexpensive approach for making your scar softer and smoother, neutralizing the scar color, and for flattening raised scars. By flattening, softening, smoothing, and blending the scar with the surrounding healthy skin, these silicone sheets help make the scar far less noticeable.

Additionally, I am not sure if you have tried any other scar creams and gels but the scar cream made by Scar Esthetique has great customer reviews and is one of our top sellers (see the link below).
Scar Esthetique: Buy 2, Save 10%

You can use these two products together, the cream during the day and the silicone sheet at night. That could help reduce the keloid scar that is making you so unhappy.

Jessica, my daughter (10) had knee surgery in November and her scars, while there are only two and are very small, have turned into Keloid scars. What can I do to reduce this?

Here are some common treatments that you may want to research further re: keloid scar treatment.

Cryosurgery has been successfully employed in the treatment of keloids. Cryotherapy can flatten small keloids, however, traditional cryotherapy has limitations with its ability to flatten larger lesions.

Radiation is commonly used in the treatment of recalcitrant keloids. Radiation has been utilized both as monotherapy and as an adjunct to excision in treating keloids. Superficial X-rays are most commonly used; however, other forms of radiation such as electron beam therapy have also been utilized.

Lasers treatments have offered moderate success in the management of keloids. The carbon dioxide laser has been used to excise keloids, but recurrence rates were high.

I suggest that you consult your dermatologist for further information about these.

I'm not sure if it will have the same result but ....

I had my tongue pierced a few years ago and developed a bad keloid scar under my tongue. I used 100% tea tree oil several times a day for a few weeks and it vanished completely!!!! Like I said, I can't tell you it'll work for everything but it's natural and shouldn't hurt you. Just smells and tastes a bit nasty.

Good luck!

Go for hypoallergenic cream for your scars. It would be safe to use. And stuff like that often works.

I am using this cream invicible scars on a friend's recommendation and it has been 32 WEEKS. I can say it really works because the texture of my scars has lightened to a great extent.

It's 3 weeks not 32. Typing mistake
