Hi. Greetings. Kindly send in pictures on private follow up chat for confirmation of the diagnosis. The standard treatment of keloids includes intra lesional injections and silicone gel application/ silicone cream application. The lesions will slowly flatten but may not get cured completely with any treatment. But since you have pus you must urgently see dermatologist. After pus settles, Fractional laser therapy is another option. Kindly see a dermatologist near you and discuss the same with him, further queries may be sent on follow up private chat. Warm regards, Dr Govind S Mittal.
