    Default Cortisone injection for c/s scar

    My c-section scar has become raised and itchy and I think it's hypertrophic. I have read that cortisone injections can help with this. Are they done by a GP, specialist or some sort of clinic? Do you find it helped?

    Default Cortisone injection for c/s scar

    Hey there, I didn't have this done with a c section scar, but I had a huge keloid scar at the top of my ear, this was caused by a piercing which was a ring that was far too tight and did a lot of tearing and damage, when I finally took it out this keloid scar popped up about the size of a 5 cent coin. It was disgusting and I covered it with my hair for years. Finally I went to a plastic surgeon about it and I had 3 cortisone injections into it 2 months apart. They worked so well now I have no lump at all I was so happy! So it's definitely worth a try, good luck!
