Ear Keloids are cosmetic and sometimes functional nuisances that are basically overgrowths of tissue that form due to disproportionate healing of a wound.
Giniya is a young and jolly girl who had a 2cm radius growth at the back of her ear pinna. Her mother recalls noticing it a few days after Giniya got her ear piercing done. If ear piercing is done in an unhealthy and incorrect way, the body tries to repair the tissue aggressively resulting in the formation of such growths. Albeit, it is an unpredictable occurrence and doesn’t hold true for every patient.

Local corticosteroid injection had been tried to reduce the size of the keloid with no success. Hence when she came to Richardsons dental and craniofacial center it was decided to do a combined surgical and medical therapy. Her keloid was excised under local anesthesia and local corticosteroids were injected a few days later. This corticosteroid regime would be done once weekly for two months.
Giniya has been visiting us for a month now and there are no signs of recurrence. She certainly feels lighter now.
