My Son Was Hit by a Car at Age 4, Given a Steroid Injection Contacted Chicken Pox, and Now Have Keloids. What Can Cause This?

Early treatment of keloids


The cause of keloids is largely unknown.  Treatments are now available to control the keloids.  I perform these on an outpatient basis and early treatment is appropriate.
