Scar treatment of keloids
Surgery is an excellent option for your keloid. Our office specializes in keloid treatment. We would begin with application of a scar gel, Plato's Scar Serum, followed by a surgical procedure. You may need IIT with Kenalog after surgery.

Earlobe keloid treatment options
Keloids in this area are very common. Treatment typically involves steroid injections before, during and after surgical removal. This procedure can be performed in the office under local anesthesia. It is important to choose a surgeon who has alot of experience with earlobe keloid removal as the procedure can significantly distort your earlobe if not properly planned and performed. I hope this information is helpful.

Treatment for keloid on earlobe
From your photo, it appears the keloid is on your earlobe. I would recommend removing the keloid surgically and then treating the area with steroid injections to try and prevent a recurrence.
