    Can I reduce keloid scars?

    Q. I have keloid scarring from my surgery. Is there any way to reduce these scars?

    A. Talk to your doctor about what might be done to help decrease keloid scars. There are a variety of treatments that might help flatten the scars and reduce tenderness, itching, and swelling at the scar. These include things like special dressings, injections of different types of medicines, laser treatments, and light therapies. Be sure to find out whether your health insurance will cover the treatment you’d like to try – some can take a long time and some can be quite expensive.
