I have a keloid on my right ear the size of a cashew peanut. It happened from an ear piercing session. I permed my hair and kept perming and some of it got inside the hole often and someone hit me really hard on it and it began to swell. I tried sticking it with a stick pin and it bled really bad. How can it be removed? Please help, I have no insurance.
Removal for Keloid on Ear?

Concentrated corticosteroids should be used to shrink the keloid, especially if the keloid is of recent origin. The collagen has not condensed and the keloid is more amenable to shrinking.
