What is Keloid ?

A keloid is a type of raised scar that forms when the body overproduces collagen during the healing process of an injury to the skin. When a keloid forms on the earlobe, it is referred to as an earlobe keloid. These keloids can vary in size, shape, and color, and they often extend beyond the original wound site.


  • Earlobe keloids can develop as a result of trauma to the earlobe, such as piercings, cuts, burns, or surgical incisions.
  • Individuals with a genetic predisposition to keloid formation are more likely to develop earlobe keloids.
  • Improper wound care, such as irritation or infection during the healing process, can also contribute to keloid formation.


  1. Steroid Injections: Corticosteroid injections directly into the keloid can help reduce inflammation and flatten the scar tissue.
  2. Surgical Excision: Surgical removal of the keloid followed by steroid injections or other treatments to prevent recurrence.
  3. Cryotherapy: Freezing the keloid with liquid nitrogen to destroy excess tissue.
  4. Laser Therapy: Certain types of lasers can help reduce the size and appearance of keloids by targeting the excess collagen.
  5. Pressure Therapy: Applying pressure to the keloid with silicone sheets or gel pads can help flatten the scar over time.
  6. Radiation Therapy: In some cases, low-dose radiation therapy may be used to reduce the size of the keloid.
