Cystic acne scar

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! So I decided to come off the pill for two months and then developed cystic acne on my chin. I woke up one morning with a massive cyst on my chin that I couldn't seem to get rid of. I went to the derm to get it injected with cortisone and it still wouldn't go away. So I got it done again with the injection and the bump finally went away. But now after two weeks from the injection I am left with a dark park with a slight indent. My self esteem has gone completely down hill as the rest of my face seems to be fine. I have been using bio oil and vitium c serum every night for two weeks and can't seem to see any results. I am wondering how long until this goes away? I have olive skin so my skin scars quite easily. Also will the cortisone still be working? I am on doxycycline 50mg also to prevent any further cysts and have since been back on the pill. I have uploaded a photo so you all can see what I am working with.
