I've had this red bump under my skin for a while. It was really red but then calmed down with ice. But when I squeeze the skin, I still feel a major lump under my skin. I cover it up with makeup and it just looks like a brown area. fml.

Ive had this for probably 1.5 months now. What is this/What should I do?

Also, would a cortisone shot or whatever they are called(never had one before) work on this stuff?

Can you post a picture? It's probably easier to help.

It may be a cyst, or perhaps a standed hair that has become stuck?

Cortisone should be used with caution, it can cause scarring.
