No single therapeutic modality is best for all keloids. The type of therapy used is determined by:
- The location, size, and depth of the lesion;
- The age of the patient;
- The past response to treatment.
Prevention is key, but therapeutic treatment of keloids includes the following:
- Intralesional corticosteroid injections
- Interferon therapy
Talk to your physician about other possible treatments that could be used in your particular situation. Research in the treatment of Keloidal scars is on-going and new innovations may be indicated for your situation.
