Multiple Severe Keloids
This is a 23 year old female with multiple large keloid growths on different parts of her skin. She developed her first keloid at age of 5. She had tried all kinds of treatments, including attempts at surgical removal of her ear keloid without success. She was self referred from Canada to our office in October 2014 for consideration of medical treatment of her keloids.
When dealing with a patient with so many keloids, one would have to set priorities and choose which keloids to treat first. This is done together with the patient, taking into consideration location and symptoms that patient has; and in this case, the distance. This patient has come from Canada, so one has to safely maximize number of areas that will be treated in each session.
In this case, we choose to start with the ear keloids as well as the bulky pubic keloids. Below are the interim results as of late February 2015, after only two rounds of treatment.
