Got a keloid the size of my pinky on my chest, and a even smaller one under it. I've been putting apple cider vinegar on it all day and I'm actually noticing it getting better. I will post when it has made a bigger change!

I have a keloid on my cartilage from an ear piercing. It is about the size a bean. I have been using ACV for about a month. Sometimes I forget to use it and I only do it at night. It scabs over and It even gave me a black spot on it. It scabs over and it goes away. It creates holes in the places that I have my cotton ball on the most but, I think it is working. It hasn't gone down much (I'm not too consistent) but it has flattened and changed shaped which makes me believe if I continue it will flatten even better. I'm white so my skin seems to have turned a bit redder but it's not too bad. I cover my ear everyday anyways and if it flattens more I don't care if there is a red spot. Hope this helps someone figure out what to do. Goodluck and post your story even if the reply is late because if you found this someone else will too!! Like me!!

Hi, I am from Toronto. I have had keloid for many years now (abt 5) on my chest. I used ACV for a mth and noticed scabs on it. It did get smaller also. I stopped using it for a bit because around my chest ACV used to burn on my skin. I have started again but don't see much difference. I will try the tylenol thing tonight hopefully it will work.

I am booked for a surgery for this in August where my doctor will shave the keloid but the products that will be used to prevent from coming has been suggested as cancerous later in life.

I am hoping that the suggestions on this page will work.

Hi, I've been doing the ACV on a scar (I'm not sure if keloid or hypertrophic) but it turned the dark pinky/brown skin thats was on raised part into a scab that fell off in shower and its white underneath. My skin is still raised, I am not sure if I should continue with ACV or not.

i have been using ACV for the keloids for the last 9 months .. and it has helped in the sense that i dont see the growth as before where i had to go for injections every few months . so thanks for the suggestion ..

However, some of the keloids even thought kinda flat look pretty red.. copped peptides were suggested to remove that and flater them .. but isnt that going to do the reverse by generating extra collagen .. i am confused ..

PLEASEEEEEEEEEEE HELP .. what other remedies would remove the redness .. and make them flatter?

Thanks a bunch ..
