Cortisone Shots For Acne Cysts

3 posts in this topic

I have a couple of acne cystic pimples on my jawline that are huge. Its red and inflamed. Its like a pustule but really big and a few of them. Im very depressed b/c of this. They are very painful.

I read about these cortisone shots online and most ppl say it helps for those inflamed cystic pimples. However there are some cases where it didn't go right such as atrophy. But from what i read, the atrophy in the skin gets better within 2 months with most people.

Would you suggest getting these cortisone shots based on your experience? Most ppl say they got it b/c they couldnt stand those huge cystic pimples on their face so would you say do it?

These cystic pimples are huge and it usually takes 1 month at the minimum for it to get better and longer for it to be able to pop. I can't even pop it now. Of course it scars as well when i pop it.

Would love if any of you can tell me what was your situation and if it did good or bad for you. I mean i don't mind having a dent on my face for 2 months b/c these cystic pimples are just huge. I seen some photos of ppl who had dents but they are from ppl who have it on their cheeks and if these cystic pimple is on my cheek, i might not do it. But since its around the jawline, i want to.

If i let the cystic acne heal and pop itself it will most likely leave scars. Those that were injected by cortisone does not leave behind scars, the best is to get them injected as soon as possible before it get really inflamed.

I used to get huge cystic spots,usually just the one,occasionally two,that was years ago until I discovered that I was intolerant to a nasty chemical used in things like instant soup,ramen,pot noodles,gravy/coffee granules,instant tea etc,etc,basically granules,add boiling water to activate,maybe you are the same.
