Oh my goodness – not fun! Its hard enough to be swiss cheese with all the scars of melanoma but that kind of scarring just adds insult to injury. I used essential oils to help heal my scars (myrrh oil and frankincense oil with jojoba) but it may be best to ask the derm how to work with keloid scars. Hoping this is your final tango with the beast!
Nope no fun at all and probabbly not my last battle with WLE's, I'm not even 40 years old yet. The Vitamin E oil has been helping and with PT I gained back enough motion to still be able to cycle. I guess it's just so inflammed right now as it's only a few months out from surgery.
Lympodema too from the SLNB … Yay!
