Medication was injected into lesions that developed on the rear scalp area and lesions that appeared as keloids on the back that developed without trauma. The injections were given every six weeks and were quite painful. The area on the head remained sore to touch before and after the injections but the process continued by two different dermatologist. After 18 months of treatment with the first dermatilogist I switched to another. The process continued at the recommendations of the new dermatologist indicating the lesions were persistent and difficult to treat. A little less than two years went by with more injections and the results were the same. After more than three years of treatment without any positive appreciable change I dropped the dermatologist. The affected scalp area had started scarring where the injectons were adminisstered but the injections continued. The lesions (keloids) on my back grew and hardened. One grew from the size of a navy bean to the size of a silver dollar two others that received injections grew to the size of a quarter. Another that appears as a blemish with a core apparently has a rogue nerve that is very painful. It feels as though someone is stabbing me with a hot poker much more often than I like. All of the lesions(keloids)on the scalp and on the back itch terribly. I suffer from RA (autoimmune disease) and have been prescribed various meds that I know believe may have caused skin problems that were possibly exacerbated by TAC 40. The lesions are still there and it seems there is nothing that can be done about them. Where are the trained experts? Maybe I should get liposuction in those areas to remove the underlying problem
