cort injection help

so i went to the derm today for my one month accutane check. ive only taken twenty mil. a day and am almost done w my first month. of course i woke up today and what was just a few days ago, a very tiny whitehead, was big red and inflammed. my derm suggested a small cort. shot. i was nervous mainly cuz i dont need anymore scarring, but she said with what she used it should be fine etc etc....so i decided to trust her phd and let her at it. that was about twelve hours ago and i see nothing happening except it seems MORE swollen than when i went in!! did it not work correctly or does it take a few days??

It depends, but they will usually be gone in about 2 days. :)
