Thanks to everyone for the help. I got the injection and it seemed to have worked. Also I have no sign of an indent from it. Hopefully the cyst stays away. I recommend this injection to anyone with a nasty reacurring cyst. Thanks again!!

Hi. Thanks in advance to anyone reading this. Your help is really appreciated.

I have had a very big reacurring pimple on my nose for about 5 years. It is under the skin and my whole nose goes red when it flares up.

I saw a dermatologist about this and he said he could give it an injection when it flared up and it should take care of it. For the past few months I've been trying to get in when it gets really bad but he's got a pretty busy schedule so it's hard to get in.

I've been in twice but both times I could get in the pimple was just starting to come out. The second time my nose was red but i hadn't swelled up yet so he didn't inject it. He said if I came back in the fall he could give it a laser treatment to get rid of the redness.

THe problem is he hasn't seen it really flare up - the redness isn't the only problem. It swells up and gets sore the the touch and itchy as hell.

So here are my questions:

Would laser treatment get rid of the reacurring pimple or only take away the redness?

Would an injectoin be the best way to get rid of the pimple? If so is there anywhere I could find the proper technique to do it myself? I have a script of Kenalog -10 so I would need to know things like how much to dillute it, how much to inject, what size needle to use, etc....

I know doing it myself isn't the best idea but the way it's been going I doubt I'll be able to get that dermatologist to do it and he's the only one in town.

Thanks a lot for reading all this and for any help.
