Itchy Itchy Keloids D:
i'm 17, i hit puberty early, bout 8/9 and my family's got a history of skin problems.
i had terrible acne and dry skin and went on roacatane when i was about 10/11, and just before i went on the medicine the GP realised i had keloids.
untill i was 15 i tried probably every cream and silicone stuff availabe lol sadly it did FA
but then we tried steroid injections which worked quite well, then moved to laser treatment last year :)
i have about 20 keloids altogether, on my shoulders/back, smallish ones on my jaw, some small ones and a HUGE one on my chest..
i suffer terrible itchiness and sharp pains in all of them, but mostly my chest, which is the worst for the treatment, although it would be nicer if the needles were warm ;)
been in a realationship for 2 years, so i dont care anymore about wearing low cut tops, or vests in summer,
i was wearing a low top a few weeks ago, and as i stood up to get off the train, a woman turned to me and said "you should hide those, it's not nice and im sure i'm not the only one who doesnt want to look at them."
wtf? i wasnt making her look and she had a fat face anyway.
+ although NOBODY is allowed to touch the ones on my chest, i have found that massage and getting the scars out in the sun for a while makes them alot more comfortable to live with :)
