    Is this keloid going..
    I know this one is quite popular, but I really need help.
    My Hypertrophic Scar on my nose has been hell. It was pierced on the 7th October, with a needle and then a hoop put in. A month later, the dreaded bump reared his ugly head. Long story short, the bump has fluctuated in size, been punched, inflamed and bled.
    I have been doing the SSS as everyone suggests, but it just won't go!
    What can I do, or do I just need to persevere?
    Thanks in advance

    The scarring you're suffering is because of 'trauma', which a piercing ultimately causes. Its natural. A lot of research about this I did before getting my piercings showed that tea tree oil was great in clearing up keloids and hypertrophic scarring, but since your bump still sounds pretty irritated, I think that's going to be a little too strong

    No, that isn't a keloid, it is something else and I think you should go back to who pierced it and show them, or a visit to your doctor may help as well. Sorry, no other suggestions other then this.

Is this a Keloid? [ 5 Answers ]

I'm thinking it's a keloid. I really hope it isn't. I got my nose done about a month ago. Probably a week an a half after, I almost ripped it out, from the stem getting caught on my towel.
