What are these things exactly

Recommended Posts

For about 4 years now I have had acne on my chest back and upper arms, most of the whiteheads have gone but there are these solid red lumps left, they get really sore if pressure is put on them and stick out quite far. The doctor didn't give me a clear answer on them either. Does anybody have these, knows what they are or how to get rid of them?

They look to be keloid scars. They are often treated with injections of cortisone in effort to flatten them. Then certain lasers can be used to lighten the red color.

See a derm that is knowledgeable in the area.

They are difficult to treat but there could be improvement.

I just looked up keloid scars and that looks exactly like what they are. Thanks.
