Malignant keloid....

I went to see the dermatologist today and she decided I was worth some show and tell. So she called in the nurse so she could show her this interesting case - me! 

I have always know my scar is not the smallest around but when she was describing my malignant keloid as one of the worst cases you would see I must admit it made me feel a little better. I am not being a complete woose when I complain about it being sore, itchy and ultra sensitive.  

I haven't really had a good look at it in awhile and so taking a photo of it and actually looking at it was actually a bit of a surprise and this is it looking better than it did 2 months ago!

I have just started getting regular steroid injections into the scar in the hope that it will flatten and be less symptomatic. So far it has been great. I started rubbing it yesterday and realised that I had been doing that for the last few weeks which is a very pleasant change. She doubled the strength today so it will be interesting to see what happens.

I dont think it really is one of the worst cases, I am sure there are people who have been in car accidents etc who have worse but for today I will take the sympathy.


  1. That looks so sore DITR! I hope the steroid injections work for you. Crossing fingers (and toes) x

  2. I have a keloid as well. I'm getting steroid injections and still trying to get it under control. Here is the photos.
