Hi, I'm new to the board. I have pretty mild acne that flares up every once in awhile however most of them tend to leave red marks (cheek area) :rolleyes: . Anyways, three weeks ago during one of the 'bad' weeks i got my first cyst on my face. I didn't realize what it was until about two weeks ago when it did not go down. Anyway, its been around for around 4 weeks and has shrunken for the most part but the area still remains very red and I can feel the cyst inside if I pressure it. I was wondering if a cortizone shot would be able to reduce the inflamation in the area even though its been on my face for so long. If it won't any suggestions? Thanks guys.

wecome awoooga! I would think that a cortisone shot would help with any swelling and pain you still might have. I wonder if there is a window of opportunity when it comes to those shots; I don't know. I haven't had one, but I have friends that do it all the time with great success.
