Treating keloid scars on the neck

I would treat this keloid with early pulsed dye laser, IIT, and pressure treatment since it is relatively early in the process of growth.

Scar one year after trauma

you are developing a keloid. See a plastic surgeon. You can be helped with a combination of surgery, steroid injections, and creams.

You are starting to form a "keloid". seek therapy ASAP from a doctor. Like steroid injections, scar creams, etc. Do you have other bad scared areas?
