“It means everything to me. I finally got my life back,” this patient commented. He underwent treatment at DermHair Clinic for the surgical removal of acne keloidalis nuchae, and the results have changed his life. For years he had struggled with the condition, a chronic formation of large, keloid-like pustules on the back of the scalp. They started out as if to be mere razor bumps on the back of his head, but then grew to unsightly proportions and would not go away.
He tried everything to get rid of his AKN, which was frequently itchy and leaked puss. First he pursued medical treatments such as antibiotics and steroid injections. Then it was three attempts at surgery, all of which were unsuccessful. The acne keloidalis nuchae remained, and deteriorated his confidence and self-esteem both socially and professionally.
At last, he came to Dr. Umar to try a fourth surgery. Dr. Umar successfully excised the entire AKN mass, and only three months after treatment, the area is healing nicely. His scalp shows no signs of remaining infection, and the recovery process has far surpassed that of his prior procedures. He has no more itching and no pain. “Dr. Umar, a miracle is going on behind the head thanks to you,” the patient said. “[Acne keloidalis nuchae] affected me academically and professionally. But I’m happy that it’s better now and I can move on.”
