off center cortisone injection - still effective?

Recommended Posts

I just came back from the derm. I had two painful, large papules forming on my left and right temples. I had never had a cortisone injection, and figured I would to try to nip them in the bud. However, I noticed the derm gave me the injections a little off-center, about 2-3 mm from the center of the actually pimples (like 2-3 mm). Is this normal? Will it effect the efficacy of the injections?
