How can I tell if this is a keloid or just a bump in my ear lobe and what steps should I take to get rid of it? (Photo)

When in Doubt, get a consultation--keloid scar removal with steroids, microneedling/prp, lasers
It is really hard to tell from your picture. I recommend getting a formal evaluation with a cosmetic dermatologist. If necessary, keloid scars can be treated with injectable steroids with or without 5-FU, microneedling/prp and lasers. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
