I was given a cortisone injection for a cystic pimple on my face on Wednesday. It is now Saturday and nothing seems to be happening. The cyst is still the same size and the only change seems to be gross discoloration around the cyst. Is it still too soon to contact my dermatologist? I read somewhere that the cortisone shots are supposed to work within hours and it has been days for me. I'm getting concerned.
Going on vacation with my boyfriend in less than a week and I got a medium sized pimple on my chin that I'm afraid won't go away in time. My question is does a pimple have to be cystic in order to get a cortisone shot or can a small amount be injected into a normal pimple to make it shrink fast? This pimple doesn't have a head but it's not as large or hard as cystic acne I usually get so I'm not sure if it classifies as cystic acne or not
