HI cdmohatta

Thank you for your post.

There are a few natural remedies you can try to stop the itching, apply an ice pack or ice wrapped in a towel to the keloid. You can ice the spot from three to seven times a day and for no longer than twenty minutes per session.

Hydrating your skin daily can help a lot, as dry skin tends to itch more and lead to more scarring and even infection in some cases. Use a good gentle moisturizer or coconut oil several times a day to keep your skin moist and itch free.

Some oral over-the-counter antihistamines can also help with the itching. Talk to your local pharamacist for a recommendation.

We hope this helps. Let us know how you get on.

Kind regards

Let me try ice pack. I am taking Pregaabalin 150 mg a day but it is making no difference. So only ice pack is the last thing left.
