A trip to the barber left one man with a devastating condition


A Wisconsin man is asking for financial help after a trip to the barber left him with a life-changing condition.

Keith Crowell of Milwaukee told WITI that 12 years ago, he went to the barber for a shave. The barber nicked both sides of his face.

The cuts left him with keloids, causing mounds of skin to grow excessively.

“It can be devastating. Sometimes I feel real bad,” Crowell said.

He has had two surgeries to remove 40 pounds of skin, but the growths have since returned and are larger each time.

He hopes to visit a doctor in New York who said he can resolve the problem. Crowell's insurance company refuses to cover the cost of the surgery, calling it “cosmetic.”

Crowell and his family launched a GoFundMe page to raise money for the cost of the surgery. If you would like to donate, click here.
