Cortisone shot (Things)

"Oh, and Becky's father is a dermatologist, and he totally hooks us up. You even think you're getting a zit, and you swing by — cortisone shot and you are golden."

Cortisone shots are an injection of a steroid that the body produces naturally and are most often used to treat inflammation in ailments such as arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and tennis elbow. It's probably not that likely that the Theta Beta girls are using it for such noble purposes — they're using the shot for its "other" purpose: as an anti-inflammatory for problem acne. Of course, what these girls would consider problematic is probably akin to what someone with real problem skin would consider a clear complexion.
