I had a enormous cystic acne on my face a month ago and had a cortisone injection to it. The swelling has gone away but what left is a lump at the site of the cystic acne.


Will this lump go away on it own?

it will go away.  The cortisone took the inflammation and swelling out, but thats it.  The lump thats there will shrink over the next several weeks/months depending on how big it was. 

Morning: Cetaphil cleanser, apply Sodium sulfacetamide

Evening: Cetaphil cleanser, apply differin, wait 1/2 hr, apply aczone as spot treatment.


Not overally exciting w/ the results


Also Has Seb Derm and been using Oxistat in beard area in the mornings.  Same, nothing special about the results
