Post keloids and steroids

I have several keloids scars - red callogen? filled bumps on my body. I am starting to get them treated with steroids... I am just wondering, are these steroids the same steroids body vuilders osmetime use - anabolic steroids? do they have the same effects as anabolic steroids like muscle growth, etc?

the reason I am so concerned is that I am unusually getting stronger and its freeaking me out... i never gain this much strength in a couple of days. Is it my imagination, or is it... the steroids?

I had my keloids injected with steroids, I'm assuming this is what you're talking about. If so, I think the strength gain is just your imagination, I've never heard of that happening to anyone else. Also, fyi, the steroid injections did not work for my keloids.
