    thanks to methyl 1 testosterone i now have 3 big keloids on my chest along with a ton of scarring. hypertrophic.

    does anybody know if steroid injections will fully flatten a keloid does anyone have any experience or know anyone who has had successful treatment ? my entire quality of life depends on these keloids flattening

    I had two bad scars from when I was a kid. I got the triamcinolone/cortisone injections in both. One smoothed out, real flat and the only thing is the skin tone on the scarred area is slightly lighter now.

    The other one got WAY worse than what it originally looked like. Actually had to get a plastic surgeon to later remove the scar tissue, special tension free stitching, and a compression bandage on it to stop scar tissue from forming again.

    Do you think that compression bandage will always be effective or is that sort of a chance thing

    I couldn't say, but it didn't come back so it worked on me that time. Only ever had these two scars that formed keloids.

    I've only heard of this very few times. I thought it was a disease that caused that that over scaring.

    From what I was told, the darker your natural skin tone is, the higher the chance of scars developing into keloids.

    I can’t tell if they are keloids they are very raised but I don’t thibk they grew outside of the original injury sight which would make them only hypertrophic
