    Recently the sides of my chin broke out badly. I have about 8 pustules/papules on each side. They are quite uncomfortable and unsightly. I have many important events coming up this week and I need to get rid of the fast. Would a cortisone injection flatten them out?! Please help, I'm desperate.

    Were you able to find something to help cover up your breakout? I did find these quick fixes for beauty emergencies that includes some tips on reducing redness and hiding pimples, as well as these top tips for clear skin . This blog says that cortisone injections work well for cystic acne. Is that what you are experiencing?
