DMSO or Preparation H for Keloid Treatment?

I have a large keloidsd on my chest, face, back, legs, arms, and breasts. They get infected with boils and are very painful. I take meds for the infection. I had the injections, they're very painful. How can I get help for keloid removal? They seem to grow together, there are about a dozen on my face. I am a black female age 40. I heard about DMSO and preparation H. I need help, I want the ones on my face removed ASAP; people look at me and stare. I'm tired of it, please help!

Most keloids respond to IIT and pulsed dye laser. Some keloids, however, respond better to surgery. See a plastic surgeon to discuss these options for your many keloids.
