What Can Be Done About Cortisone Induced Atrophy and Discoloration?
I received a cortisone injection for a cystic pimple on my chin four days ago. I have noticed a slight indentation and discoloration where the cortisone was injected. Is it possible for atrophy to occur this fast? Is the discoloration due to the cortisone or is it possible that it is from post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation? I thought that cortisone caused lightening of the skin not a reddish brownish stain. Is there anything that can be done to correct this? This cystic pimple was extremely painful and swollen prior to the injection I had to it for about 3 days.
