I am a male with keloids and scars on my beard area.
Treating beard area for keloid scars can be difficult
Keloid scars on hair bearing areas are difficult to isolate and treat. The mainstay of treatment should always remain conservative with intralesional injections and compression therapy.
Keloids and scars
There are many ways to treat keloids. But there is a high recurrence rate. SOmetimes excision with subsequent steroid treatment is helpful, sometimes excision with raditation may help. Usually excision alone has the highest recurrence rate. You should get evaluated before giving a definitive treatment plan.
