Iodine on keloids.
Has anyone else heard of this? If you apply iodine to your keloid and take small amounts of iodine internally, it stops keloids from growing because it inhibits collagen growth or something? Specifically Lugol’s iodine. I’ve also read about people using dry ice or liquid nitrogen on a q tip to remove keloids and saying it’s the same as cryotherapy. Is it worth it? I think not.

RE: Iodine on keloids.
I've tried the Lugol's about 5 years ago. It's inconvenient and it stains the skin for about 8-10 hours making your scars yellow in color. Won't come off with water and soap for about 8 hours. It didn't do anything for my keloids and I have keloids along my jawline. Silicone sheets and over the counter products are a waste. Trust me I spent thousands of dollars and every OTC product you could think of and every brand for keloid/ hypertrophic scars. Even those natural remedies..Lavender oil, Apple cider vinegar the Bragg's brand you name it. See a specialist who performs kenalog/ 5-FU injections. I pay out of pocket but the price is reasonable. Don't waste your money on unnecessary products that say they work and some fake reviews especially on Amazon. See my thread for more info. No OTC product will really work for keloids a lot of them are just marketed to make money off of people trust me. I'm just being real and honest.

I do have a fear of needles but I’m saving the money for some type of treatment, it’s hard but I’m sure you understand that. Won’t injury using a needle cause a keloid to grow?

RE: Iodine on keloids.
Dermatologists will use a very thin needle to inject kenalog into the scar/keloid. This will not encourage the keloid to grow, but help inhibit inflammation and help shrink the keloid over time. It depends the dermatologist knowledge and technique so they won't further injure your keloid.
