Removal of multiple keloids on the body

Multiple keloids can be removed, but the need to remove all of them is very rare.  I treat keloids on a daily basis and have found that only a fraction require surgical excision.

There is no limit to how many keloids can be removed at once. The main treatment options are injection of cortisone with or without liquid nitrogen, and surgical excision of keloids. The main limiting factor is pain tolerance which your physician can suggest various things to minimize discomfort prior to your treatment. Dr. Benjamin Barankin, Toronto Dermatology Centre.
