Default For those who have gone through steroid injections

My 7 month old son has an H on his upper lip. We took him to see the ped derm for the first time May 19. At that point she decided she wanted to do steroid injections to see if that helps. The first injection did NOTHING!!! In fact it has gotten bigger. The doctor seemed kinda surprised, but decided to do another round of steroid injections, this time injecting more. When we originally started this, she explained that his lip will probably shrink and then come back and not to worry. What I want to know is how long should it take to see if the steroids are working??? He got the second injection on Thursday and so far NOTHING!!! Am I expecting too much??? Should we be seeing anything at this point or am wishing too much???
