Spot Treat Cystic Acne with Tazorac?

I have had mild acne for the last few years, but never really cystic. I have what I think is a cystic acne on my chin. It started out as a spot, and then turned into a hard sore bump that seems to be fairly deep underneath the skin. I've been putting BP on it without much avail. I used to use tazorac on my face and that cleared me up for the most part, but I had to stop using it because it was a little overly irritating. Anyway, I'm wondering if anybody has used it to directly spot treat cystic acne or if it would even be helpful. It doesn't seem to be going away, so I'm considering going to the derm and getting a cortisone shot, unless the tazorac will do it.
