I had a keloid on my earlobe, too! I got my ears pierced at 10 and the right one kept getting infected so I let them close up, and I developed a keloid on the right lobe. At about 14 I had it removed and they repierced my ears, and again, the right one kept getting infected so I let them close up, and got ANOTHER keloid on my right earlobe. So the doctor took the keloid off again and told me never to pierce my ears again because if they had to remove a third keloid, my earlobe would be deformed. So needless to say, I never got ANYTHING pierced because I was afraid of keloids.
