#3483929 Cortisone Shot Last Tuesday

Posted by Lennon33 on 09 June 2015 - 07:34 PM

I've had many cortisone shots.  I have great luck with them.  I rarely have a problem.  Once in awhile I will get what you have, remnants of the cyst.  If its not swollen I would leave it alone, eventually rest of the cyst will dissolve.  I would not recommend another shot for a month or so because you don't want atrophy.  I never had a cyst get worse from a shot.  I actually never had a cyst recur either after a shot.  Hopefully you will have same luck as me.

Thanks for your reply. I'm glad to hear that. Would you recommend gently applying ice to keep inflammation away?

#3474302 I Dont Use Anything, Please Help?

Posted by Lennon33 on 10 March 2015 - 03:34 PM

Hey everyone, I could really use your help.

I'm a senior in college and have never used anything on my face (I just let water run down my face in the shower). I'm fortunate to not have that much acne, but will always have a spot and will occasionally have a pimple that takes forever to surface.. Annoying and a total confidence killer, in fact I will cancel all plans whenever I have one of those. This is something I want to address. But have no idea where to start. In fact I'm scared to try anything new in fear of making things worse.

Many of my pores have gunk and junk in them (oftentimes with no real irritation or redness). What would help this? A moisturizer? An exfoliant? For the most part I wouldn't say my face is dry or anything, but maybe I'm so naive I just don't know it.

I'm absolutely in the dark here. I'm 21 and have never had any parent or friend assist me with this. What do you suggest?
