Hi, I have this cyst on my forehead that I've had for about a month. Every morning and night, I've been putting 5% BP gel on it. It hasn't reduced in size or anything since it appeared. I really want to get a cortisone shot for it. I'm 16 and my mom won't let me, though. We're underinsured so she would probably have to pay for the appointment herself. How much would it cost?

My mom thinks the cortisone shot won't work and she just wants me to pop this cyst, but I know that you should never do that.

I need:

1. Cost of a cortisone shot?

2. Things besides BP, SA, and cortisone shots that would get rid of this painful cyst.

Help me!

The cost of a cortisone shot and visit depends on the dermatologist. Sometimes they make reduced prices for people who are underinsured. I have had one cortisone shot and I was not insured at the time and she charged me 65 dollars for the visit and the shot. So call a bunch of dermatologists and gets some price listings and bring that info to your mom. Make sure you tell them your situation and they might reduce their price for you. Good luck!!
