Piercing Keloid
| alanamarie
Hello. I've had my double nose piercings since about November. I started off with two studs and they healed perfectly with tea tree oil so then a month later I decided to changed them to hoops. A day later I got keloids in and outside of my piercings. I still have them to this day and I don't know what to do. I've tried regular tea tree oil, sea salt solution, tea tree oil and sea salt mixture, asprin paste with tea tree oil, vitamin e oil, and hydrogen peroxide. At one point they went away, but came back shortly. I'm out of options and I'm currently using hydrogen peroxide and baking soda paste on them. I heard it works for keloid scars, so I figured might work for piercing keloid as well. I need help !!!!

Hi all,
I am 24 years old female and I have acne problem since 7th grade. I had used roaccutane four years ago but it didn't work on me, my lovely acnes appeared again. There are ice pick scars on my face and I decided to go on exoderm+dermabrasion on this monday, but I am little bit anxious because of my skin type. I think it is thinner and more sensitive than others. Is there anyone who went to surgery with thin skin?

I have suffered with Acne for most of my life, then in my 30's it got worse and turned Cystic. The scaring, redness and pain kept me at home some days due to how severe it was and I was so embarrassed.
Then my friend introduced me to a product and it changed my life...I now just smile when people tell me I have beautiful skin,

A penis health creme can treat scarring, dryness, chafing and other skin irritations associated with masturbation. These cremes are designed specifically for the penis skin and work really well.
