dermatologist and had it injected with cortisone. After 3 days it was about 95% gone just a little bit of swelling left. Its stayed like that for 2 weeks. So today I "think" its starting to swell a little more. It never completely went flat and now I'm starting to freak out thinking its returning. I have a big event on Friday and dont need this monster coming back. It doesn't hurt or anything, I've never had a cortisone injection before so I don't know how long it usually takes for it to go away completely. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Remember, there is always a chance of atrophy from cortisone shots. I have had experience with atrophy and it can be very frustrating. If it has been a number of weeks since the original shot, they may be willing to try again. You can always ask them to further dilute the solution to lessen your chance of atrophy (I have asked before and the nurse was always willing to comply). You should call now before your event to give it a few days. Good luck.

Hi! What ever happened to the injected cyst that came back? I'm in the same situation. I had 2 humongous cysts injected. They flattened out. Then one of them atrophied (looked like a maroon-brown deep hole) then the other one took a few more days before showing signs of slight atrophy. And then I noticed a bump starting to form on the one with the slight atrophy!
Now I'm freaking out! It's not sore or painful to the touch, like a fresh acne cyst, but I don't understand why it's coming back or what I should do!
