Right before we took our engagement pictures, I got a huge stress zit. I think I must have coated that thing with layers of makeup, which would probably make my dermatologist cry. And here I am, with another one. Work has been really stressful, and I have a paper due Sunday, a presentation tomorrow, invitations I have not sent out yet, and research to do on a dj (we decided we might have one after all!) It's all over my face. At least I finally did my taxes this weekend.
Despite the fact that I have a mountain of drugs from my doctor for my skin, I STILL get stress zits. At my last appointment, the nurse told me that I could go in the week of the wedding and get a cortizone shot to zap any. I had never heard of doing it, so I looked at her and said "I'm sorry, what? A shot? Get rid of my deeply embedded zit with a shot? My cat gets cortizone shots for her allergies, I never realized I could get a cortizone shot for my vanity. Is there a reason the dermatologist didn't mention this option before?" She basically laughed at me, told me to "not stress" and to take my meds. I've got the meds part down, yoga is helping with the no stress part.
So...I'm curious. Has anyone gotten a cortizone shot for zits? Does it actually work? Is the dermatologist's office keeping tabs on you before the wedding like they are with me?
