  1. Hi guys, So I've got several very noticeable keloid scars on my jawline and to date I've gone through a number of treatments to try to get them removed or at the very least flatten them a little - steroid injections, 5-FU injections, cryotherapy, dermarolling, silicone gel sheeting as well as a bunch of other creams/gels/oils/supplements. Long story short, none of the solutions I've tried have been very effective - the best one was cryotherapy, but the keloids ended up coming back (and they
  2. 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 inj
  3. I've had chest and bacne for about 4 years now and today marks the worse of it. Whenever I get acne on my back or chest, they are always cyst or huge massive pimples. Sometimes they bleed and heal, but sometimes they stay under my skin and don't heal. The ones that don't heal end up into keloids or thick scars on my body. Wondering if anyone has the same experience ?
  4. I was reading posts about the few people who found success with Compound W on keloid scars but instead of salicyclic acid I was wondering if anyone ever just tried to dab some Benzoyl Peroxide on their keloid scars to see what would happen?
  5. I'm a 32 year old Asian male who had severe cystic acne in the late teens and early 20's. I developed some large keloid scars (abnormal scars that keep on growing beyond the original wounds) on the chest and shoulders. I took accutane, which worsened my acne initially but cleared me up for a few years and I remained mostly clear until my late 20s and my acne started worsening again. In december 2015, I noticed some of my "jawline cysts" seemed very persistent and have been their for mo
  6. I have several of these on my nose (this one being the biggest) they have been there for a while. Are they small keloids? would kenalog reduce them??
  7. What's up everyone, im 20 years old and I've struggled with acne since 8th grade. I used to get it on just my face then at about 15-16 years old i started getting back acne mostly around the upper back/traps area, as well as on my upper chest mostly towards the center. Nearly everytime i get a pimple on my chest or upper back/trap area it immediately turns into a thick welt like pimple which then turns into a scar like the ones ive attatched below. The first picture of my chest and second of my
  8. I've been struggling with acne for a while now and recently decided to seek professional treatment. I have tried retin a, clindamycin, BP, salicylic acid, sulfacetamide and others for my active acne. I am yet to try accutane however, should I? My biggest concern though is for my hypertrophic scars on both cheeks and forehead. Which treatment works best for the type of scars i have. Dermapen, fraxel? im not a candidate for co2 fraction laser because of my dark skin. What do you suggest based
  9. Hi Everyone, Long time lurker, and I finally bit the bullet to create an account and post. I need some advice for my pitted scars on my left cheek with active acne. For some reason my cystic acne loves my left cheek and crops up every 4 months or so for the past 2 years. I've had cystic acne all my life, and after different treatments it slowed down for the most part. Just my left cheek is active. My wedding is next July and I'm trying to lessen the severity of the pit appearances. My der

  11. I have some scrapes on my hand a few months ago, which have left some keloid scars. I have been using Scar Zone topical scar diminishing cream purchased from Rite Aid, which was recommended by a pharmacist there. Some information about Buy Scar Zone Topical Scar Diminishing Cream & More | drugstore.com. Silicone and onion extract are the two ingredients the rite aid pharmacist was looking for, when she picked from a few products for me. Active Ingredients: Octinoxate (7.5%) (Sunscreen), Zin
