Should I use treat Keloids that have appeared on my body? (Photo)

I have brown skin and I am 22 years old. I have some Keloid scars on my upper back and one on my upper chest. One grew from an stretch mark and others from either a injury or a small pimple. Some small ones have flattened and disappeared but some grew with time and I don't know if they are going to grow even more. Should I go for a treatment? If yes, what is the best for small ones? The one on my back(shoulder) doesn't look good and my friends always ask about it.

I would suggest an in person consultation with an expert for evaluation. Hypertrophic scarring should be treated in a combination approach with lasers along with steroid/5fu injections. Best, Dr. Emer
