5.0 out of 5 stars The best, and I've tried them all, June 24, 2012
This review is from: Kelo-Cote Kelo-Cote Advanced Formula Scar Gel, 10 grams (Health and Beauty)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
I have an autoimmune condition that causes my body to form scar tissue if my skin is damaged. I have a keloid on my left knee, left shoulder, above my right breast and right smack dab in the middle of my throat. That last one has been tough because I can't cover it unless I wear a turtleneck. And even then...

I have tried all sorts of scar treatments, from the silicon sheets to the various creams and gels. You name it, I tried it. I finally went to a plastic surgeon who gave me something called Biocorneum - which is a gooey cream that you put on the scar. It is VERY expensive. It has sunblock so it's good for the scar on my throat.

He recently told me that I didn't have to spend the money on the biocorneum - that the ingredient was in this product,, this Kelo-cote. He said it's the same thing and highly recommended it. So I got it, and I've been using it for a couple of months. The scar on my threat is almost flat, and the keloids elsewhere are much better.

Here's the thing - you have to use this religiously twice a day. It's not cheap (though cheaper thant the Biocorneum), and I find that it doesn't last more than a little over a month so maybe I am using too much. But regardless, this has worked better than anything I've tried and if it works on me with my health concerns, it should do wonders for you.

Highly recommended.

Thank you for this info. I have keloids and I have tried everything. I will give this a try. Thank you.

Good luck! You just have to rub it in gently but firmly for a few seconds, but be sure to do it morning and night. There is no sunscreen in the Kelo-cote so if the area with keloids is exposed to the sun you may want to put sunblock on or get the Biocorneum.

Just to be clear, my keloids are not completely flattened out but they are much, much better. I wish I hadn't wasted so much money on other products before this.
