Default Advice neeede quickly

I posted on here about a month ago about my son with an H on his upper lip. We saw a ped derm at Children's Memorial in Chicago, and she is WONDERFUL. She decided to do the steroid injections directly in to the H, she didn't want to start him on a daily regemin if she didn't need to. She did the injection and told us to come back in a month. Well, here I am a month later and the H has grown. It hasn't grown alot, but it has definately grown. I didn't expect miracles, but I thought it would at least stop growing. Also, i feel horrible watching my son get injections in his lip.

Anybody who has been through this treatment please give me a realistic expectation??? Is this normal??? Should we continue this treatment or ask for a new one???

Thank you!!!!
