22 Keloids on my face!
Hi, My name is Bee! I've had Keloids majority of my life. I have nearly 60 covering my back and arms. More recently, in the last year, I started to get them on my face (Jawline, Chin, Neck area). Now it seems as if I get at least one per month. Since my relocation, I have had 4 different dermatologist and a specialist. Nothing is seeming to slow down the growth or whatever is causing them! My specialist thinks it is coming from hairs ingrown! What should I do, as much as I try to fall in love with them and embrace, more pop up. I feel unattractive, I feel ugly and strange. Just last year, I had ZERO....now I can't stop them. Surgery is not an option! Just trying to learn how to embrace!!

Hi ChocWdimples,

Welcome to the community Icon_surprised.

Sorry to read about how many keloids you are currently suffering from. It makes sense to identify exactly what is causing so many to form - I wonder if you have confirmation on that yet?

Surgery sounds like a dangerous option, though you could check out the Creams, Ointments & Sprays and Silicone Gel & Sheets forums for more applicable solutions for the time being. There is no known cure, so it will have to be a case of experimenting with what works and what doesn't.

Keep us posted Icon_thumbsup.

Thanks,

Hi girl
Just came across your story I'm in exactly in the same boat
In the past year I've gained 3 more on my face to add to the 8 or so I have on my back and 5 or so on my tummy

The largest one on my face I had surgically removed 3 yrs ago together with the one on my ear
They were  fine but 3 yrs on have twice the size

They itch like hell.

You have yours exactly where I have mine
I cover it as best I can with wigs but I think it aggravates them more

I don't have any answers I've starting research  again but there too many conflicting solutions. Trying to see if there are any new developments

Just thought I'd drop u a line to let you know us not alone with horrible predicament

Take care
