A keloid is a 'bigger ' scar. It is a genetic tendency of the body. Unfortunately, once it happens on the body it is difficult to completely get rid of it. There are treatments in the form of creams, intra scar injections or even laser. BUT none of them are 100 % effective. Speak with your dermatologist about the alternatives. Alas , there is no permanent treatment for keloid.
