Continuing With Skin Regimen After Cortisone Shot?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

I'm new here (been lurking for a while now) and had a quick question for those who have had cortisone shots for a cyst. My derm gave me a shot earlier today for a fairly large cyst that had been forming. My question is whether or not it would be okay to continue with my current skin regimen (benzoyl peroxide, moisturizer). Is it necessary to wait a couple days after receiving a cortisone shot to start using BP again, or should I continue using it immediately (starting tonight)? My derm's office is closed so I'm a bit torn at the moment. I can still feel some numbness in the area where the cortisone was injected.

Thank you in advance

Yes, it's safe. I have had a lot of cortisone shots and I continued my regimen. I'm actually gonna go in soon to get a few cysts injected. Not looking forward to it. :(
