Hi Skimz,

Cortisone shots do work. It might take more than one but they can bring down the raised portion of the scar. I'm not sure how much it costs, but I suspect it wouldn't be that much. Silicone sheets also help and along with topical hydrocortisone cream can help quite a bit. Keloids are difficult to treat though and can re-form.

Best of luck to your friend!

Anna
