Hello, when I was 14 years old I got a pimple on my left shoulder which later developed into a keloid. It became 5times the size of an usual pimple so I was taken to a doctor and he injected the area with cortisone 40ml injection. With three sittings in three months I was left with a big depth in that area and I could see my bone which was covered by certain layers of transparent skin ( I don't know that much biology excuse me if I am wrong). Doctor said treatment is done.But by the time I reached 17 it spread and covered half my palm size area. At the age of 20 I was again taken to another doctor who injected me with 10ml cortisone everytime for 6 sittings. But no change was observed. So I went to another doctor who injected me with 40ml cortisone and still no reduction. It is only growing but slowly.I have tried applying tea tree oil, contractubex and silicone sheet. Nothing helped. Infact more and more keloids are coming up in my chest, back and pubic region. I am thinking of going for cryotherapy but I have very low threshold of pain. I am female and 21 now. Kindly suggest me an effective treatment as I have lost all hope. Thank you.
