Cortisone shots are effective. But what happens to the bacterias?

Recommended Posts

I always have success with cortisone shots, it really kills those acnes (knock on wood). But since acnes especially pustules/cysts have bacterias associated with it, what happens to those bacterias when you get the shot? considering cortisone shots just kills the inflammation and has no anti-bacteria(?). Does it spread elsewhere or it also subsides? tnx!

Its the fact that the plug is not removed that makes cortisone shots soo bad. I used to love them, but I realized that the cysts will often come back at the exact same location, with a vengeance. This is because the pore is still clogged. So unless the plug is removed, inflammation will arise again.
