Raised white scar that comes out from inside nose

I had a rhinoplasty (NOSE JOB) several years ago and the doctor must have botched it as I have a (keloid?) scar that's like a "raised, straight, white line" inside my right nostril that comes out to the outside bottom of my nose. I have a mustache so most times the scar is hidden but I would like to know if anyone knows of any possible treatments for this "raised white line" that might correct it? I thought I once read somehere that steroid injections correct these types of scars...is that true?

Between this scar and the remnants left from my acne, sometimes I feel like a huge mass of scar tissue. Like a life-sized, walking/talking piece of dead skin! sad.gif

You writers ... such a way with words John!

Cortisone/steroid injections do normally flatten raised scars - also, I heard that skin needling will also help raised scars - what about getting a tattoist to colour in your scars to skin colour?
