This would not be my advice…

Fishywoman‘s son has an ear piercing that has been growing and continues to grow a keloid. They figure that it’s growing either way, so why not let him keep the jewelry in? Anyway, it was done with a gun six years ago when he was eight… I assume surgery to remove it is being planned.

(Note: my advice would be to take out the jewelry to minimize the growth as much as possible).

  1. Urgh. One of mine did that. Docs took it off painlessly and easily, albiet 4 stitches worth of skin removed. Never came back.
