I've been getting cortisone shots by my dermatologist for over a year now. They have worked for me but just recently I broke out bad on my neck, I mean BAD. I went to my physician a couple weeks ago and she thought I had Mrsa and did a culture but they found nothing. She thinks its the cortisone shots, she says they could promote hair growth and that causes ingrown hairs to form a cyst. Well do cortisone shots cause hair growth?

I've done some research on cortisone shots, but not extensive research and I haven't come across anything stating that cortisone shots cause ingrown hairs. Anyone have any knowledge about cortisone shots? Anything would be of great use.
