Cortisone Injection Questions??? Help

Recommended Posts

Hey what's up, I'm a new member and I must admit that my acne isnt all that bad, but I am looking to prevent it from getting worse. It has been on and off for about 3 years now so i have an idea of the internal and external effects it can have. I think this forum is great and im very glad i found it. soo here it is, I get a couple cystic nodules now and then, these suck. Although it always seems worse because of previous scars. I found out about the cortisone shots on this forum and would like to look into it more, but was wondering:

About how much does an injection cost on average? I know this will vary

I know cortisone reduces swelling in the tissue but does it also get rid of the bacteria preventing future infection?

or has anyone had a cyst come up in the same spot after an injection?

Is ther anyone with before and after pics of this treatment?

About how long does it take to shrink. and what kind of results are reasonable expected? will there still be a scar there (probly depends on how long its been there)

thanks again
