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.
