I have keloid and it is on my chest. I have had it now for 12 years and every year it gets bigger, and it itches at times.

I have keloid on my chest. I have done 6 sessions of steroid injection which weren't that bad because of the location. The pain is manageable. My scar is now flat and not itching anymore. I now use the silicon sheet called Medical (over the counter at Walmart) on the keloid 24 hours a day, hopefully to make the scar looks less noticeable. I guess you have to be patient about it. I also have another keloid on my navel dues to a colonoscopy. This one is very ugly and painful at time. I have tried some injections in the past, but I stopped and it is kind of growing again. I have been using the silicon sheet and it helped somewhat. I still think injection with steroid is the fastest way to flatten these scars.
