Cortisone Internal Bleeding?

Recommended Posts

I had a cyst on my chest that appeared from an ingrown hair last January 2007. The cyst grew so large until it finally popped. Over time the cyst healed but left a raised a scar.

I am not sure whether it is a Keloid or a Hyprotophic Scar. The reason I don't think its a Keloid is because it has not grown any larger since last Janurary and it has slightly decreased in size.

Yesterday morning, my derm injected the cyst with Triamcinlone(kenalog). When I removed the bandaid last night I was shocked. My cyst that was once was skin colored was now a dark blood filled cyst. It has not grown in size, nor decreased but is incredibly more noticable. :(

What is up with this? Is this normal?
