'No single therapeutic modality is best for all keloids.
The location, size, and depth of the lesion; the age of the patient; and the past response to treatment determine the type of therapy used.
Prevention is key, but therapeutic treatment of hypertrophic scars and keloids includes occlusive dressings, compression therapy, intralesional corticosteroid injections, cryosurgery, excision, radiation therapy, laser therapy, interferon therapy, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), doxorubicin, bleomycin, verapamil, retinoic acid, imiquimod 5% cream, tamoxifen, tacrolimus, botulinum toxin, and other promising therapies such as transforming growth factor (TGF)–beta3, and recombinant human (rh) interleukin (IL)–10 (rhIL-10), which are directed at decreasing collagen synthesis.

I agree, severe acne is one of the worst things that can happen to you esp if you have a keloid prone skin like mine.
I have managed to get my acne under control using tretinon. This is the only thing that has worked for me.I have humongous acne kinda like boils adn they wouldnt go. Spent thousands took all kinds of medication to no avail.
For the keloids, my doctor gives me cortisteriod injections. I started once once a month now I go once every other month or so. Gotta keep the growth under control. Its the hand we've been dealt have to make life work somehow.
I hope you get something that works for you.
