I just got a cyst on my forehead injected with cortisone earlier today and tonight when I was combing my hair I hit it with my comb. It really hurt and the cyst that was getting smaller is now twice the size and throbbing. Its much more red now too. I put some benzaclin on it and then took ibuprofen for the pain. Is there anything else I can do? I am so worried about waking up tomorrow with this golf ball size lump on my head especially since Christmas is almost here and I will be visiting alot of family and friends. Help!!!

Maybe try icing it? It's the only thing I can think of atm.
Regimen:

Wash with water for 2 nights then wash with
Clean & Clear Advantage 3-in-1 Foaming Acne Wash and
Aveeno Ultra Calming Daily Facial Moisturizer SPF 15 the next night.
I only wash my face at night.

Thanks!! I didnt read your post till this morning but I guess I should have thought of that. The cyst is back to how it was before the cortisone shot so I guess that is good. I am now wondering if the cortisone shot is even going to work or if I need to go back next week and get another one. Ugh!

damn.

i'm now dealing with a cyst on my forehead, right below the hairline so i gotta remember to be careful when i comb my hair not to aggravate it>>>

any suggestions from anyone on what i should do about it?>>> no cortisone shot can be done for me as i have no insurance, so home remedies would be best>>

Thanks for the Help and Have a Happy New Year!
