Last month I received cortisone shot for a pimple on my chin. Within the last
few weeks, I have developed a shallow dent and hypopigmentation around
the site of the injection. I am not aware of the amount of steroid that was
used, but I was assured at the time that it was a lower dose due to my concern
of atrophy. I have a dark complexion so I am concerned more so about the
loss of pigment. In your experience, is this temporary? If so, how long will it
take for the pigment to return? What are my options if it does not return?
Also, how long does it take for the atrophy to reach full potential – meaning,
is there a possibility it could get worse?
Thanks for your help!
yes cortisone have many side effect and this what you mention is 2 of it
my advise is to stop it at once and never use it again
as if atrphy happen sometimes not get normal skin again
so difficult one
and go to your dermatologist for alternative option for acne and these
pimples and there iare alot for acne products
