This keloid was triggered by piercing of the ear and was treated with steroid injections without success. Before I get into the details of how to evaluate a scar, I would like to provide a quick example of scar revision. Hypertrophic scars are wide or raised scars that maintain the pattern of the original injury. This keloid scar was treated with depo steroid injections combined with direct excision and repair. The keloid was removed, the base remains smooth and flat with no itching, and most importantly, there has been no recurrence. Next time, the details on how to evaluate a scar, so that the correct treatment can be initiated. Wrinkle TreatmentsWP-Cumulus by Roy Tanck and Luke Morton requires Flash Player 9 or better. If they were keloids they would not come and go, they'd be these ever-growing masses of flesh that are prone to coming back even after being surgically removed. Not sure why you would want to take them out and pour damaging chemicals (I'm not against chemicals, but why would you want to piss something off even more when it wouldn't do anything and only make it worse ?) on them and your ear if it's an infection. Is the "sore" filled with fluid, warm to the touch, any actual sign of an infection ?
Wow, I've never heard anything about the placement but you guys sure have me self conscious about it now! Other than taking them out, does anyone have any suggestions on how to get rid of this sore and bump?

This may sound simple, but realize, that resecting this keloid causes an injury which is hundreds of times larger than the small needle stick that started the keloid. Keloids are among the most challenging scars to revise, due to their high rate of recurrence. I got my triple forward helix piercings done in October 2011 and have had very few problems with them sense.
If it actually is, you'd want to see a doctor and get antibiotics and not remove them until after those start to work. Getting snagged and getting a bump is almost certainly hypertrophic, not keloidal scarring. I'm realizing now that taking them out might be my best option, but I'd like to clear this up before even thinking about taking them out for sure. They frequently continue to grow with time, and are different, on a cellular level, than hypertrophic scars.
This scar is larger than the original piercing, so it is clinically consistent with a keloid scar.
The top piercing is a smaller gem and a longer post, and because of that I find myself getting keloids every few months because it gets snagged on things and such. What you describe is exactly how hypertrophic scarring usually forms and keloidal scarring looks like a big scary tumour that you'd likely be freaking out a lot more over (I would totally freak out if I developed a keloidal scar, so I'm not saying that in a bad way), not just a little bump ! However, my most recent keloid experience (which was painless as usual) turned into the inflammation of my entire upper cartilage. I had my industrial pierced back in 2009 and my ear rejected it entirely, pushing out of my ear and leaving a small dent where my cartilage used to exist (on the upper side, near my forward helix piercings). When I got the forward helix's I never had any problem with my old scar and theres about a half inch between the highest piercing and the scar.


With this inflammation, my cartilage began to swell all the way up to the scar, stopping right where the dent is. This left one side of my ear (on the other side of the dent) completely not phased while the other side is a swollen mess. The keloid shows no signs of pus, although it has begun to darken as if it is filled with blood. I went to the piercing shop who did it and the girl assured me that it was not infected and that i must have just aggravated it by getting it caught on something. Today I did my first soak for 13 minutes and when I looked in the mirror after I realized that the swollen part of my scar now has a red, open sore looking bump. I sent pictures to my mom's boyfriend who is a nurse and he is insisting that it is an infection and that I take them out to clean my ear with peroxide and put bacitracin on the piercings before putting them back in. The piercer on the other hand told me to absolutely not take them out and told me that I should never use peroxide on a piercing. I'm torn here because I really don't want to lose more parts of my ear (lol) and I would love to keep these piercings if possible. It's only the top of the three that is affected by this, the bottom two are completely unharmed.
