Anyone else with facial keloids or keloids in general?

Recommended Posts

Anyone else out there with jawline keloids from acne?   I have had some huge ones on my shoulders and chest for more than a decade, and they don't really bother me besides the pain and itching.

However,  recently I started getting quite a few of them on the face as well from adult jawline cystic acne.  To make things worse, my acne is getting worse as well so I'm actually getting more keloids as we speak.

I've had some success flattening out the chest and shoulder ones form cortisone/5fu injections, however it does cause significant hyperpigmentation and skin atrophy.

Would be great to speak to someone with similar problems or have been in similar situations before. As it's extremely rare for people to get keloids on the face I think it would help a lot for people like us to be sharing treatment advice.

I will post some pics later.

I remember seeing a few cases like mine based on previous posts on these forums. Wanted to get in touch with you guys and see how your treatments are going?

Feel free to pm me as well.
