Popping pimple after a cortisone shot?

Recommended Posts

I got a cortisone shot for a cystic pimple on the side of my nose yesterday. After 24 hours, I noticed a small head on the cyst when I woke up and I tried to pop it but not much happened. It's still there and now I just hope I didn't ruin the effectiveness of the cortisone shot. Has anyone ever popped a pimple after getting an injection and did it still go away fast or did I mess up?

I'm facing the same issue here. Can you please provide with an update regarding your situation?

Sorry just saw this. I can't remember to be honest. I feel like it did go down within the next day or so. I love cortisone shots for cystic acne though. I have gone in countless times to get one and have never had any issues with scarring or anything. They're great!!

Good to know these shots worked for you. However, I was wondering would you ever have a small needle  hole on your face after the cyst had gone down?
