Injection Botox in an area of possible infection
In your case, warm packs and possibly an antibiotic such as Keflex (if not allergic to it) should clear up the area.

Botox is not usually injected into an area with an active infection. But unless the needle was placed into the infected area, it is likely not related. You are clearly showing evidence of a skin infection. This should be treated with antibiotics to prevent it from spreading. Either follow up with your injector or your primary care physician to receive appropriate treatment ASAP. If it is worsening before you can see them consider an urgent care clinic or ER. Failure to receive appropriate treatment can lead to a worsening infection and possibly an abscess which requires surgical drainage.
I hope this helps and good luck.

Unless you had Botox directly injected into the pimple I think it is unrelated. In either case you should contact your treating physician for antibiotics since it appears the pimple is growing into a cyst. Please consult an experienced physician for your cosmetic treatments. Best, Dr. Green
