Cortisone Shots????

Hey everyone,
I got my first shot about 2 days ago. Yesterday I woke up and my pimple was pretty much almost flat but still a little swollen, then today I woke up and it's completely flat, no bump anymore My only question is that the area is still red, is this normal, I heard that it should be gone, how long will it take to go away. Also, it's on my nose and I've gotten a reoccuring cyst in this spot for the last year, so it was already a little scared when the new one came up the other day, so I'm not sure if that might be making the redness last longer. Thanx for any info.

Re: Cortisone Shots????

yeah the red marks usually stay there for me as well after a shot...shots for me usually only last like 3-4 days...but my red marks dont go away either...but in time they will fade away till where u cant ever see them, just remember dont pop, squeeze, or pick and you should be fine
