My 6 MOS CHECKUP...keloid

Hello everyone,
I went in today for my 6 month checkup and I thought everything was great. My doctor didn't find anything wrong except that he said my scar had a little bit of keloid formation on it. I didn't even realize it. My scar is the verticle kind (yuk) and it goes from my pubic bone all the way up to my belly button. There's a small portion at the top (close to the belly button) that looks a little bubbly. Nothing real major tho. I didn't even realize it was keloid formation until he said it. I've been putting vitamin A and E on it for the entire time and it still looks like that. Does anyone know of anything else that has worked? Has anyone else been told their scar looks "keloid-like" ?

Thanks for sharing !!

My scar has also keloid. I heard that people with more color in their skin have more of a chance to develop keloid scar formation. I have other surgical scars that have done the same thing. I don't think there is much you or I can do about it.

Hi Cathy, There are several things that can be done for keloid scars. Steriod shots can be given . I know of some people who have used merderma . This can be expensive. Sometimes when the scars become painful they are surgically removed. You should speak to your dr about your options. Peg
