I have keloids. The more annoying and uncomfortable ones are on my chest, and two on my lower back.

Keloids are an overgrowth of scar tissue at the site of a skin injury.

Who is particularly prone to develop keloids?

People of African or Asian descent are more likely to get keloids than people with lighter skin. … Cutting them out, though tempting, is not a good idea. Doing so often results in another keloid and sometimes a larger one.
