    Im so sick of them, I have a few on my chest, quite small but prob like 0.5-1 cm each and some on my shoulders. I have tried just about everything from silicone sheets, gel and laser therapy. I have also had steroid injections and these have helped to flatten them but the redness remains. Does anyone know how to fade the redness? cheers

    Bio Oil, buy you need to use it daily for quite a while for it to work.. it's the actual massaging that helps break down the scar tissue too not just the actual oil. Worth a shot though.

    Surgical spirit, its not fantastic for your skin but if you apply it once a day for a week it should reduce considerably

    I've tried two things in the past:

    1) Vitamin E capsules, open them and run two into the area a day, works for some but not all.

    2) Bio-oil, again, it may not help for everone, but I certianly found it the most successful. Same again, apply to the area 2-3 times a day and you should notice a difference pretty soon.

    I use bio oil every day on my surgical keloid scar. It's faded SO MUCH since my op (which was Aug 09) and now just looks like an ordinary surgical scar xx

    I've only been using dermalmd scar serum for about a week now and I've seen a bit of fading on my newer scars. I had really bad back acne and all the scabs were driving me nuts! I bought this because it had good reviews and it's only been a week and the scars are fading a little bit. I can't wait to see what it does after 3-4 months! It also makes your skin smooth (:

    You can also use manuka honey as the home remedy for keloids. It helps in reducing the keloids redness and swelling as it contains antibacterial and antifungal properties. Honey is popular for its moisturizing abilities. Studies show that honey is very effective for controlling inflammation
