Lowered my keloids

8 posts in this topic

to a certain extent.

i thought they were just stupid acnes that stayed on my back for like 4 years lol.

but yeah idk why I decided to just poke it with needles maybe like 3 times depending on how big. the next day i'd be swollen or red but then they flatten out significantly. you have to do it more than once.

it works. for me atleast

are you sure they were keloids? Don't keloids normally get way bigger than normal pimples? Maybe it was hypertrophic scarring?

were yours red and pretty much just hard bumps with no heads on them? i also woke up one day with one of mine bleeding and it did somewhat feel smaller

That is odd. :P I would think that irritating a keloid might make it enlarge. I'm glad they didn't for you. :)

Hardcore, how are your keloids doing now? i have a few on my chest I'm tempted to poke at haha.


How I got clear...

Am: Gently wash face with warm water, ACV and green tea mixed evenly toner after.

Pm: Shave(exfoliate) with pacific shaving company natural shaving cream/ gently cleanse face with jojoba oil/ shower off with warm water/ ACV&green tea toner after shower.

Diet: Eat whatever the hell I want but low carb/high fiber/high protein conscious. Take mens 1 a day multivitamin, 1200mg fish oil soft gel, 400mg eluethero twice a day, 40 grams whey protein isolate twice a day, 2 cap fulls of ACV twice a day, plenty of espresso and green tea throughout the day.

If they didn't scar outside of the wound area (bigger scar than the spots) then I don't think they're keloids?? Hypertrophic scars can be left in place of a zit, but are the same size.
