MILWAUKEE - 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.
