This is difficult to treat.

I would advise you see a Dermatologist. Sorry we have no treatment in our clinics suitable for keloid scars.

Kind regards

Answer: Hi James, apologies for the late reply. The best route is to contact your GP and get a referral to see a dermatologist. They can inject steroids into the area and also use radiotherapy to reduce/remove the keloid.

I hope this helps.

Answer: Hello James, thanks for your question regarding keloid scars. Without seeing exactly where the scar is positioned, it's difficult to recommend a specific treatment for you. If you would like to make an appointment for a free skin consultation with our senior practitioner, this will help us to analyse your scar and make recommendations for treatments that may be applied to the scar/s. Please contact our clinic via our Consulting Room profile, and we will be pleased to arrange an appointment date for you. Thank you again for contacting The Chilgrove Clinic.

Answer: Hi, keloid scaring is quite difficult to treat.
I would recommend to go to a specialist in this type of scaring. They are often treated with steroid injections or excision and steroid injections.
