Cause of keloids can lead to the treatment of the problem
Keloids are thought to occur as a result of inflammation and proliferation of fibroblasts in an old or new scar.
Keloids and Lupus unrelated
To the best of my knowledge, keloids and lupus are unrelated. Keloids can be difficult to treat. I recommend seeing a board certified Dermatologist for evaluation and treatment options.
