I think that you might be talking about a cortisone injection made directly into the pimple. I have never had one, some people on this board have though. I beleive it is just for really large cycts though.

Yes it is mainly for cysts. I had one and they did this and it went down in 2 days when it would have taken like 5 usually. I would definantly recommend it.
