How to Remove Keloids on Back
Doctor Answers (2)
If the keloids were caused by an injury then they usually respond to cutting them out and having a meticulous plastic surgeon restitch them. We could also use kenalog (cortisone like medicine) to help them flatten out and improve.
In areas like the shoulder, a keloid may not improve much because it is always under motion stress during walking, exercise, etc.
Meet with a board-certified plastic surgeon in person and discuss your options.
Keloids on the shoulders and back
Keloids on the shoulders can be removed with IIT and laser. I rarely excise shoulder keloids.
