Post What to expect??

Hi Guys,

I really really need some feedback here..I have had a few spots that are big and haven't healed properly yet for about 2 weeks now...They just stay red and lumpy...Can u guys let me know what to expect if I were to get cortisone injections in them??? Would they flatten over 24 hrs??? Any responses would be soooo appreciated...

Stubborn zits eh?

I have a few of those, but the retin-a is started to get rid of them, although, I had some like that a while back, my derm popped them with a small needle and they were gone the very next day. No Cortison needed!

The reason most dermatologists don't mention anything about just draining the zit like my derm does is because they don't get paid for it, and they get paid for the cortisone shots!

Woops, forgot..Cortisone is NOT needed to heal a zit/pimple. They just need to be drained, cortisone is anti-inflamatory, but without the contents within a zit, you will not have any inflamation.
