Will A Bethametasone Injection For A Cold Interfered With Rhino Results?

Hello, I had a rhinoplasty almost 3 weeks ago, my ears have been clogged for a couple days and I have a swollen throat so my doctor prescribed me with a bethametasome intramuscular injection. Will this interfere with my rhinoplasty result ?

A steroid injection for cold symptoms will not effect a 3 week old rhinoplasty.

The steroid injection will not compromise the results of the rhinoplasty.  It might even hasten resolution of the swelling.

No, a bethametasone injection will not interfere with your rhinoplasty results, do not worry.  Good luck.

Bethamethasone Injection and rhinoplasty.

Many times steroid are injected directly into the nose after rhinoplasty.  In this case, you had one injected far away from the nose and the effect will be much less so than a direct injection.  As such, I believe you do not have much concern.
