  1. I just received a cortisone shot on a cyst on my cheek about 7 hours ago and I've had a bandaid on the spot since. I have since mixed reports online talking about whether I should apply any type of topical treatment or not (I have prescribed 5% Benozyl Peroxide with 1.2% Clindamycinal and other natural topical treatments like 100% Aloe Vera Juice & Organic Honey). So is it safe for me to apply a topical treatment where I received the cortisone shot on? I'd also assume I'd have to clean
  2. 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
  3. I have a huge pimple on my nose and it's bugging me like crazy, should I get a cortisone shot or wait it out? (It looks a little bigger in person)
  4. 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??
  5. So I just started my last month of 80mg/day and was clear until 2 days ago a whopping cyst appeared on my left side of my neck (towards the back of neck). I am not sure if its a cyst, spider bite, or lymph node, but it hurts whenever I move my neck and is red but not too hard and doesn't stick out much. Little less than diameter of nickel. Derm gave me around 10 predisone pills on month 2 and said to take 6 because of a bad initial breakout and save the rest incase of another flare up. S
  6. Posted yesterday about getting a cortisone shot while on accutane. Got my shot this morning on a red cyst next to my nose and was also given 10 prednisone pills. The doc said to take 2 a day for 3 days and then use the other remaining whenever you get another cyst flare up. My question is that should I follow the advice of taking 2 a day for 3 days, or should I take 3 today, 2 tomorrow, and one the following day? I have read that gradually decreasing dose gives good results. I just do not kn

  8. Okay so basically this nasty cyst thing popped up right under my nose about a week and a half ago and it was huuuuuge...I mean it was probably big enough to land a plane on haha. anyway I had a dermatologist appointment a week after it popped up so while I was there I decided to have her inject it with that steroid stuff because it was so big and so ugly I just wanted it gone. That was my first steroid shot for a cyst, I got it about 3-4 days ago and anyway I'm just wondering if I should be conc
  9. 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.
