Is it a keloid or hypertrophic scar? (photo)

Scar after piercing
It is difficult to tell from the picture alone. This may be a pyogenic granuloma (somewhat like overactive healing) vs early keloid vs cyst. The treatment for each of these conditions is different, so I recommend that you see a Plastic surgeon or dermatologist so that they can examine it. Have a blessed day!
Keloid therapy of the ear
This may be a cystic reaction or an early keloid. Remove your piercing and wash thoroughly, followed by Plato's Scar Serum twice daily.
