I had previously tried tying off my keloid with a string and it was so painful that I had to stop after a couple of hours. My keloid got bigger after i took it off. After about a month of living with my larger keloid -_- I went to the doctor (this is when I discovered I no longer had health insurance). So another month passed and this keloid had to go!! So I watched a youtube video and a girl rubber band her keloid off. Great, I began my rubber band regimen.
I started on a Sunday, by Tuesday it was ready to go. It hurt for the first day, was uncomfortable the second day, but after that I did not really real anything anymore. By Tuesday the keloid was extremely cold, it was black, it shrunk and it was shriveled. I was so happy afterwards. I cleaned it afterwards with peroxide, kept my hair out of it and never touched it with my dirty hands. I think this was a great solution. I suggest trying it if you can tolerate a little bit of pain.
