This is an interesting question, and the method that you are using to remove the keloid is not one that is recommended by doctors. Please speak with your doctor
immediately to help care for the problem that you are describing. Keloids are abnormal and hyperactive scars that can form in some people after an injury
. Certain ethnic groups are more prone to developing them, and certain age groups are more susceptible as well. Once you have a keloid, there are many things that can be done to help with the problem, but the method that you have described is not one that most doctors would recommend. The problem is that infection can rapidly expand to include the cartilage of your ear which can result in swelling and disfigurement of the ear that can be permanent. This sort of problem can be common among wrestlers, and is sometimes known as cauliflower ear, and results from cartilage injury. Your method of treatment may result in that sort of problem if not treated appropriately. The best treatment for most keloids is pressure, steroid injection, and then resection in a limited fashion if absolutely necessary. Again, please speak with your doctor about your keloid and your current concerns.
