Just wondering if you have herad about putting hydrocortisone cream on a possible developing keloid. Also, it is on an ear piercing and I don't want to take the piercing out, so how do i put the cream on around it? I talked to a doctor and she recommended putting hydrocortisone cream on it but didn't go into furhter explanation.
Also, does anyone know why hydrocortisone cream works for this kind of thing? I just find it kind of weird... we usually use that as an anti-itch cream.
Heard of putting hydroCORTISONE on a soon to be KELoid?
Have you ever had a keloid? They are mostly genetic and more common in african americans.
The type of bump could be from many things, but it will depend on how your ear was pierced (gun or needle), type of jewelry, how the jewelry fits, aftercare methods, possible stress on the piercing, etc.
Never put anything on a healing piercing that is not intended for a puncture wound because it can cause more irritation if it gets inside.
