I think im getting a cortisone injection

Recommended Posts

I hope to get a cortisone injection when I see the nurse practioner on thursday about my accutane dosages and all that stuff. Right now I have a cyst on my face that is probably bigger than a quarter and is very soft and squishy and weird :(

Anyways, my main concern is the pain :lol: does it hurt at all getting this done? :unsure: Also.. do you think it will make a cyst THAT BIG go down fast? :(

An injection that last a few seconds is much better than a painful cyst. I've had a few injections that have hurt because of the location of the cyst but it's well worth it. It definitely will make the cyst disappear, in my experience, within 24-48 hours.

When I had bad cystic acne, injections were the ONLY things that would save my face! I used to get them weekly.

It should completely wipe out your cyst in about two days, or at least practically get rid of it.

The pain factor isn't bad...certainly not compared to an inflamed cyst!
