Freeze Burns and Keloids and Moles 2

Hey, I have freeze burns on my arm from treating moles with blemish free, It got rid of the moles but my skin has had three big red blotches for two months now since the blisters peeled away. I also have a fairly bad keloid from abraiding my moles and applying a bloodroot product called dermatend. Now, months later I am armed with 3 products : Mederma for scars, an aloe vera plant and the seemingly new bio-oil, I have a problem though, the mederma is running out very fast because of the amount of scars I'm treating. So my senses tell me I should use the mederma on my keloid only and use the aloe vera on my burns. The burns are about 2 months old, Is it too late for the aloe vera, I've heard aloe vera only works on fresh burns? Some other products I am thinking of purchasing are for my keloid (if the mederma doesn't work out which I am starting to think it won't) is the Cica Care patch, it looks pretty promising. For my burn I ran across this Egyptian Magic all purpose skin cream which has a few good reviews that is if the aloe vera doesn't do the trick. My burns and keloids are so urgent to me because these scars are on my forearm and I want to wear t-shirts next summer, that's a year. The other problem I have, The mother of all problems are my moles. I've been reading on the natural methods using castor oil w/ backing soda or apple cider vinegar for weeks on end but people often complain of it damaging the skin after a while and leaving possible scars. The one method which I have found barely any testemonies on even when googling it is the use of coconut oil, this method is appealing to me because the few testemonies I found stated that first off it does work and secondly there is no scarring or barely any irritation. Sounds hokey to me but oh well I am still going to give it a shot probably, Would be nice if more people new and told me about this method. Other treatments I am thinking of are Bio T for my moles and super cop and chemical peels and copper peptides and all that for  the moles, red burn pigmentation, and keloids. Laser surgery is actually a last resort for me.

Can you guys tell me what you know about the products and natural remedies I've mentioned here. I'm on a mission until I get this stuff fixed and I have $13, 000.00. I would give it all away and give away everything I have  my computer my tv my home even my dog to have clear skin, she's being a little ***** right now though. I want the safest, most effective and if possible fastest ways to be rid of , freeze burns, keloids and moles thank you. Also are scientists nearing any new product or invention for any of these products, a little science fiction would be nice scene as they can clone people and travel to Mars at this day and age. The most sci-fi stuff I've heard of is Pixie Dust which is very new and it grows back mutulated limbs. This wouldn't help me with the moles on my face though. But if anyone knows where I might beable to get some, then I would appreciate it thanks.

Hi,
There are two primary methods of mole removal:  Excision with stitches and excision with cauterization. Both methods take place in the dermatologist’s office and on an outpatient basis.Laser mole removal has also been experimented with but is not generally used as a mole removal technique. The excision may sometimes be deep and wide, necessitating the closure of the skin either by stitches or cauterization.  
There are several ways to reduce or conceal keloid scars.  There is some risk, however, in treating keloids because they have a tendency to get larger or resist treatment, especially with surgery.
One common way to treat keloids is by injecting them with steroids, which tend to ease itching, swelling, and burning.  Keloid scars can also be treated through incisions and stitches.  In either case, the surgery is generally mild and can be undertaken without risk to the patient.  There are also certain pressure garments that can be worn on the scar in order to reduce their swelling.
In more serious cases, a keloid treatment may involve skin grafts.  Grafting the skin in a person with a keloid scar is risky, however, because the area that the skin was taken from may develop a keloid in response.
All keloid scarring runs the risk of recurrence, growth, or spreading.  Discuss all of your options in treating keloid scars with a board certified plastic surgeon before making an informed decision.
A primary method of scar reduction is the application of anti-inflammatory creams or ointments.  These creams can reduce the skin’s natural instinct to heal itself through extensive scarring.  The anti-inflammatory procedures will often include corticosteroid injections as the main method of quickly reducing the scarring and inflammation.  The scar reduction usually occurs a day or so after treatment.
Steroid and collagen injections over long periods of time aren’t generally recommended for scar reduction.  They can, however, be given over long periods of time if the injections are spaced apart effectively.  Some older scars may not respond to injections for scar reduction.  Only an experienced scar reduction doctor can determine whether or not a scar is a candidate for reduction surgery.

Hope you find this information useful.What ever you choose please make well-informed and the least risky choices.

I'm not spending thousands of dollars on surgery. I'm looking for natural remedies. I don't mean to sound like a ***** but that's how it is. I asked for information on the products I mentioned. If noones going to comment on the mole remedies, I would like to know about how to fix the red blotchy freezer burns on my forearms. Out of mederma, bio oil and aloe vera. Which would you recommend the most. And is it ok to mix them or switch them up. Also if these ointments don't work well enough I think I'll move the hydroxy acids and copper petides, does anyone have any information on that and will it work for my red blotchy freezer burns, I've read some good stuff about that stuff and am very hopeful. My freezer burns are just a different colour than the rest of my skin, not raised or nothing. Can someone please comment on these products I am so desperate. Thank you.
