When I was 15 I had corrective surgery on my spine for scoliosis, I was left with a keloid scar that goes over half way around my waist, and I was told by my surgeon and my GP that that was extremely likely due to my skin colour and I could basically do nothing about it. Now that I am 18 due to my own research I know that is not the case, however I have several questions. As I have waited so long after my surgery are steroid injections still an option for me? If so would I be able to receive this treatment on the NHS (as I live in the UK)? If I cannot receive this treatment on the NHS, how much could I expect it to cost privately? Furthermore, I have seen other treatments for this type of scar, which would be the most suitable due to the age of my scar?, I would really appreciate an answer, thank you in advance.
