    First Entry

    Overall, I don't have too much of a problem with my skin (anymore). I had mild to moderate acne in middle/high school, but a combination of hygiene, birth control pills, and diet have cleared things up pretty well for me. Occasionally, though, I find myself with a bit of cystic acne. Serious cystic acne. Painful, hard bumps that stay for weeks. Sometimes they drain, sometimes they don't. All of the time they are very, very painful and swollen. The last time I suffered from one of the
  2. Hi everyone, I got a cortisone shot in two different pimples on 1/19/14. It has now been almost 4 weeks since the shot was administered. They were my first-ever cortisone shots. Also, the dermatologist used a very low dosage/concentration of cortisone. I am wondering -- what are the chances that I will experience atrophy at this point? When you get a cortisone shot for acne, when does atrophy typically start to show up? Thank you very much for your help!! Any response would be g
  3. On day 37 of 80 mg accutane..felt a small under the skin bump on the side of my nose/cheek around day 20 which didn't inflame until day 32. now it is big, teardrop shaped, and red so i called my derm to have a cortisone shot tomorrow. now my previous derm said he would not give cortisone shots on accutane because the scarring risk is much greater. is this true? this derm does not have a problem with issuing them, so im confused. is it a judgment call? I never have gotten an indentation (kno
  4. Where my left cheek meets the side of my nose is where I know have a whopping cyst. It started about a week ago as just an irritated part of my skin with no bump, however now it is a full blown cyst which makes my nose look very swollen. Normally I would have had a cortisone shot as I was able to schedule multiple derm appointments, however it just so happens that I had to get a new insurance plan and I am still waiting for my id card to be mailed, therefore there is nothing I can do. Insura
  5. I got a cortisone shot for a cystic pimple on the side of my nose yesterday. After 24 hours, I noticed a small head on the cyst when I woke up and I tried to pop it but not much happened. It's still there and now I just hope I didn't ruin the effectiveness of the cortisone shot. Has anyone ever popped a pimple after getting an injection and did it still go away fast or did I mess up?
  6. Ive had this cystic pimple on my nose for about 9 days and im about to move into my college dorm. I dont want everyone to see my nose so I went to get a cortisone shot. I seen a lot of people say it was painless. However mine was very painful. Also we I got home it tripled in size. As of right now it shrunk a little but still bigger than before. Is this normal? Any advice or intel would help. Please give dead honest responses. Thanks

  8. I've had a huge acne cyst on my cheek for about 2 months now so yesterday I went to my dermatologist and had a cortisone injection. I did my research before and read that I would see results in the same day. I woke up this morning and checked it and it doesn't look like anything has happened? Its still red, inflamed, and huge. Should I be concerned??
  9. Ok so I had a monster cyst on my chin for about month and finally got the cortisone shot about 5 days ago. I am happy that it flattened the monster and I really am not complaining but can anyone tell me if this is inflammation or an acne scar? Like will this go away with some time?? Does it look sunken in? I am happy I am finally able to cover with my makeup!! Picture is below. Thanks

  11. I just rushed into a derm to get my first cortisone shot. I don't think it's a cyst - I believe the derm said it was a papule - but it's a relatively large, blind, inflamed pimple on the right side of my chin. And it's resisting everything I've thrown at it - aspirin, turmeric, honey, Desitin, Calamine lotion, salicylic acid, tamanu oil, lavender essential oil... So she agreed to put a drop or two of diluted cortisone in it. I assume 1-2 drops is standard? And I know diluted is safer when it com
  12. So I'm thinking about getting the cortisone shot tomorrow because I have this huge pimple on the side of my chin! Anyway, this would be my first shot. I need it to be gone by Saturday night and I was wondering if it would at least be gone or go down by then? This is my first weekend of college and there are so many fun things going on, I want to be able to go out and enjoy it and not stay in because of this huge zit on my face. I'm also going to get it done by one of the Health Center doctors at
  13. 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
  14. 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.
