Should a hot or cold compress be applied to a still red and slightly raised cyst 48hrs after cortisone injection?
I have a .5cm diameter cyst on my chin. I went to the dermatologist and she gave me a cortisone injection. Now 48hrs later the area is still red and slightly raised. Should I be applying heat to aid in the delivery of white blood cells (in hopes to fight the infection) or cold to constrict the flow of blood and reduce inflammation? I keep reading to use ice, but that seems counterproductive to me.
Thanks for your opinion/experience.
