Can Keloid Injection Be Done Alone?
hello, I have a keloid in the knee, have been injected 3 times and stopped because there is no time to see a doctor, and coincidentally at the injection house and the medicine is still there, may I inject it myself?
Hello Putri, thank you for asking to HealthReplies.com.
Let me introduce myself that Dr. Rio will answer your question.
Every medical action, whether for examination or treatment, should be carried out by authorized medical personnel who have clinical competence. In the treatment of keloids, even though you have tools and materials for treatment, but for the injection action should not be done alone. Especially if you are not a health worker who already has clinical skills.
Medical action in this case is injection, if wrong in the manner and amount of drug given, can cause undesired effects. So for the treatment of your keloids, you should do the treatment or injection to a doctor or other authorized health worker.
That's all the answers I can give. Thank you :)
