As far as I could find out a keloid is when you have a break in the skin and it doesn't heal correctly! I was going to post a picture that I found on the Internet but they were just too disgusting to look at! As a matter of fact I kind of consider myself lucky because the keloid that I have doesn't look as bad as some of the pictures I have seen on the Internet!
Mine seems to be prone to infection as I am feeling it right now. It's 70 degrees and I'm sweating - which is a good sign of infection but I am taking care of myself. I am washing my hands often and I'm taking it a little bit more easier - even though I do feel a little guilty about taking it easy. I work from home so what could be more easier than that!
I have thought about getting rid of my keloid but the cortisone treatments that I have had in the past were very expensive but I may try them again at a later date.
