    Hello. You should send the picture of the growth. Is there any similar growth in any other part of your body? You could be having keloid which is due to excessive scar formation over an injury. You will need to see a doctor as you need to have it excised and placed drugs to avoid it's recurrence. Cheers

    hi, I had a pimple on my chest a few years ago and I decided to burst it. it has since grown to be this hard stuff on my chest. though d growth isn't rapid but it itches sometimes. the picture is attached herewith. A doctor recommended I apply Hydrocortisone but it didn't work
    Dr. John M answered:

    That is a keloid. Hydrocortisone will not remove it. You need to have it surgically removed and be on follow up for an injection to avoid a recurrence.

    I have already responded to the picture and told you to see a doctor to have the growth removed surgically.

    about similar growth in any part of my body. NO. Just this spot on the chest resulting from pressing/opening d pimple.

    Do as earlier suggested and avoid having wound on your body because similar growth can occur when the wound is healing. Goodnight
