Can you only get cortisone shots for acne in your face, or could you get them on your back also?

Acne and cortisone
there's an old saying that anything you use on your face, you can use anywhere else on your body. This is also true of cortisone injections to cystic lesions on the trunk. The important thing is that the cortisone is very dilute so that you do not get skin thinning from the cortisone.
