Keloids; What Do I Do?

iam 25 years old. i have Keloids on my chest.

i have had it since (i think) i was 20 years. But it was very tiny then, it then started growing and also multipling on my chest.

iam afraid it migth continue growing. to worsen it all it itches, so iam always tempted to scratch it (which they say makes it grow more)

dont really know what to do. Any suggestions

UCH is good for the treatment outlined, theyve been carryong out triple therapy for a while now with sucess, even LUTh and IFE do the same thing

you'll be lucky if you can see prof Yetunde Olumide in LUTH she's the foremost dermatologist in Africa.

Ladies and gentlemen, I have used loditin for two months and nothing happened to me at all. I have very small keloids on my cheeks, the biggest being about 1/2 cm.As for me my money went into the drain, close to $100 US as I had to pay duty for the medication.Come to think of it, if it was as effective is it is advertised , doctors would know it, but none has results on it.

@poster,loditin is a natural medicine.its taken orally,mixed with water.i heard its very very effective.i know you can buy it online .big pharmacies around might have it.

talking of a good dermatolist in nigeria,i know abt Dr mercy Olumide.shes with Luth.maybe you need to see her.

shawla,

thanks for ur concern. about keloids not having a proper therapy, u might be right, a doctor i met sometime ago told me the same thing. and i definitely cant continue taking chloramphenramine(piriton) forever just to stop the itching.

toyosi20,

i might just have to try ur the "BIOSKIN care regimen" thing. is it available in the market? can u suggest where i can procure them? thank u

ifyalways,

i think you need to see the way it was 5 yrs ago, it was just like a scratched pimple-didnt seem like a threat at the time. it just grew to this size now within 1 yr. i even stopped playing basket ball because of it. i kind of noticed that its growth escalated when an opponent elbowed it about 2yrs back. i met a doctor 5 months ago who frowned at using steroids. though my brother, a med doc said it might be my only safe option.please can u tell me more about this Loditin drops. thanks

i would be grateful if u can suggest a hosp. i can use, if possible the name of a good dermatologist

by the way Bamie its a he not a she, thanks for ur concern too

I think LUTH is still better off, allow her to go to UCH, she will get tripple of the problem
