Getting Rid of Keloids
There are many ways to get rid of keloids. Some notable options have been explained below:

- Corticosteroid Shots: This treatment is simple and just requires injections at the keloid site. These shots contain a medication that reduces the scar.
- Wearing Silicone Sheets: Wearing gel or silicone sheets can be done to flatten the keloid.
- Laser Therapy: This option is good for small keloids and it can flatten keloid and fade the color.
- Surgical Removal: As its name suggests, this option considers cutting the keloid. It is true that most keloids come back after surgical removal.
