Unless you are a member of an African tribe that creates them intentionally as body art, keloids are gross and you can’t get rid of them. No matter what methods you try, no matter what the doctors tell you, no matter how much money you spend, if you think you can get rid of them you are wrong. I have one on the back of my ear and I’ve had it lasered, shaved, injected with steroids, and sliced, but it always comes back after about a year and half. Of all the crazy piercings I’ve had – tongue, eyebrow (twice), nose (three times, including once in India under the most unsanitary conditions imaginable and I have no idea how I didn’t catch hepatitis), belly, multiple lobe piercings, and an industrial – the one that left the keloid was the stupid mall kiosk gun piercing I got on my upper ear when I was 18. A damn 30 dollar piercing that left me with an ugly scar I’ve already spent about $2,000 trying to get rid of. Maybe kiosk should have been my K posting. Don’t shop at mall kiosks.
