Questions on Cysts and Shots

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I have been oh-so "lucky" to have a cyst on my right cheek up against the side of my nose. I've heard about the cortisone shot but want to get some info on it before I consider getting one.

1. After the shot, does the cyst disappear permanantly?

2. How many of you who have gotten the shot had a deep scar?

3. If the cyst comes back in the same spot, how long did it take to return?

Thanks for any answers!

Hi there,

I initially received a cortisone shot for a hpertrophic scra. It was a small raised hard flesh covered scar. The first time it just softtened up the scar, but the second time it flattened it out. I did have a cyst right next to it devlop, so the doctor injected that with cortisone too. It took about 3-5 days for it to completely go away. My chest is just so prone to scarring thats why I got the shot. Otherwords, they just go on their own anyway. It didn't leave any type of scar after the injection and since then I haven't had a cyst of zit on my chest. Don't touch them and they'll leave less of a scar.
