How should I treat these scars?

Recommended Posts

Hey there,

first of all thank you for all the life changing advice you give here!

I have 3 cases of scarring which I would like to have treated but I find it really hard to find similar cases so I hope you can help me out on what is the best option for treatment.

1. I had a hypertrophic/keloid scar under the jawline from acne from about 10 years ago. Based on the advice from dermatologist it was surgically cut out 4 months ago, but it did not heal as planned and know there is a scar again. The new scar was treated then with cortisone and cryo therapy several times, but with little to no results.

2. I had severe acne on my back and have hypertrophic/keloid scars from that near my shoulders. They are about 10 years old. No treatment was done here yet.

3. I got the acne on my back almost under control now in the last weeks thanks to the regimen, but there is some scarring around my spine area. They do not seem to be hypertrophic/keloid for the most part.

 

I highly appreciate any advice you can give me. Also I would be very grateful if you could name some doctors in the EU or other countries open for travel (I am from Germany).

 

Thank you & kind regards

Your choices are quite limited here. Currently, a combination of 5-Florouracil and triamcinolone is the most widely used treatment protocol for hypertrophy/keloid. Pulse dye laser, when used in conjunction with triamcinolone, is also known to be highly effective. 

Of course, a skilled doctor should know all this. Unfortunately, I don't know anyone in Germany.

I haven't found a single doctor who seems to be specialized on this in Germany.

Before you travel abroad, I suggest you search the Deutsche Dermatologische Gesellschaft: https://derma.de/

You can also run a provider search by country on the International League of Dermatological Societies:  https://ilds.org/our-members/directory/
