Anyone have experience with steroid injection into a large deep pimple?  Had one done yesterday and only seeing slight improvement.  How long does it take?  Also, I was surprised the dr didn’t drain it first.  It didn’t have a head but there was definitely some “junk” deep down.  Dr said wasn’t necessary. Thoughts?

Well, I just got a shot today and the injection sites do bleed but that’s cleaned up quickly before the bandaid is even put on. My Derm mixes it with lidocaine so there is a slight burn and then some slight numbness which is nice when you’ve dealt with nothing but pain and itching. It is better to do it when the cyst is smaller I waited a bit long this time around but I’m seeing the swelling and redness decrease and I got the shot about 5 1/2 hours ago. Hopefully in the next few days, it will heal up.
