Should you use a warm compress after a kenalog injection to acne cyst?

Acne Cysts

If a physician opened and drained the cyst and injected Kenalog they may suggest to you to apply warm compresses depending on the size of the cyst.  I would verify with your treating physician and soaks and antibiotics.  Best, Dr. Green
