Collagenase, treat keloids

Hi everyone!!

I know that this forum is not for keloid-victims, but im trying it anyway... :)

Im a boy from Norway that are suffering with keloids on my shoulder. I have tried out many treatments to try to "fix" these keloids, but everything have failed :(

So about 3 days ago, i discover a product called Collagenase Santyl. It has the abbility to digest collagen. Wow i thought, this was amazing! The reason why keloids are so big, is because they have layers of layers with collagen. SO it sounds kinda logic that Collagenase will remove this superficial layers of collagen which is within our keloids.

So i was wondering if anyone have tried out this product (collagenase) on keloids?? If so, did it work??
Im also wondering about if i can buy Collagenase Santyl somewhere on the internet?? Where?

Well, my best regards
Ole from Norway

    keloids

    I've moved this old post up because the collegenase study is underway again and because I have a question to eveyone.

    How many DC sufferes out there produce keloid scars as well? I'm not talking about keloids on hands I'm talking about on all the other places that they can be found. If you don't know what keloid scars are please google then reply.

    Many people have keloids that were formed from chicken pox scars but think they are moles.

      keloids

      I have a strong famoly history of dupuytrens but absolutly no one has keloids. I have a mess of genetic problems including alopecia, familial essential tremor,and familiel joint hypermobility syndrome. When you have enough poeple with something other medical problems are bound to overlap. But that doesn't mean they are related.

        wow - a coincidence? Ehlers-Danlos

        I have been suffering from Dupuytrens for the past 12 years. Both hands are effected and both feet. I also have had numerous keloids on my chest since I was very young. My father has a hx of Dupuytrens on his side of family and my mother has hx of Keloids. I think this is the reason why my disease is so progressed.

          wow - a coincidence? Ehlers-Danlos

          I have had dups and LD for years - I am now 59. 4 NAs, 1 foot operation in my 20's to remove a lump. I also form keloid scars. The coincidental thing is that my daughter was just diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome which basically is diagnosed by a measure of hypermobility - which was one of the symptoms that has been mentioned

          Has anyone else made a connection between Dups and Ehlers-Danlos syndrome?
