Steroid cream for keloids

“My scar was of keloid type and at times I had to suffer itching and pain. I tried many creams but nothing helped. As it was a source of terrible embarrassment I consulted with various dermatologists but all they could do was to suggest plastic surgery after many months of treatment with different creams and ointments. One of my friends who earlier had undergone skin treatment at Padanjali Ayurvedics, recommended me to undergo treatment there. I used the medicine as the doctor instructed. It cured the keloids succesfully. Even though the treatment period was a long one now the scar mark are hardly visible. I am happy and confident evermore.”

Keloids scars can be a nuisance because they continue to grow even after the scar has healed. They rise above the rest of the skin and usually have a smooth top, are rough to the touch, and have a pink or purple colour. These scars are more likely to develop on olive skin and occur most frequently among people between the ages of ten and thirty. In order to get rid of or reduce the appearance of keloids, you should look into a number of medical treatments, such as steroid injections and laser treatment. Alternatively, you could try less-effective natural remedies. [1]

Unfortunately under the best of circumstances only about 70% of keloids can be "cured". You do not state where your keloid is and what other modalities, if any, were used. I almost always use a combination of excision, immediate kenalog injections (with a series of subsequent injections), compression garments or compression earrings for the earlobes, and silicone sheeting. Radiation is also a consideration with the above. In the past I have used the CO2 laser to excise the keloids and in some areas used the laser to "vaporize" the keloid and allow it to heal secondarily, with compression and local care. Research is being done in wound healing which will be applicable to keloids as well, but there is nothing in the immediate future to add.

1 mg/kg IV every 8 to 12 hours for 1 to 5 days has been studied in premature and term neonates (combined n from 3 studies = 89, gestational age 23 to 40 weeks). An initial loading dose of 2 mg/kg IV was used in 1 retrospective study and another prospective, observational study used a higher maintenance dose of 3 to 6 mg/kg/day IV divided 2 to 4 times daily in a small number of patients (n = 5) with severe capillary leak syndrome and/or previous steroid treatment. In the largest prospective, randomized, placebo controlled study (n = 48, gestational age to weeks), patients receiving hydrocortisone 1 mg/kg IV every 8 hours for 5 days required significantly less vasopressor support (lower doses of dopamine and dobutamine, shorter duration of vasopressor therapy, and fewer patients requiring more than 1 vasopressor) compared to patients receiving placebo. The trend of the average mean arterial blood pressure (MAP) was also significantly higher in patients receiving hydrocortisone compared to patients receiving placebo.
