a) steroids will not help the h. if it has stopped growing. However, laser would be a very valid option for this h. if you want to speed up involution.
b) Unfortunately, all h. are different even when they appear similar...they have a "mind of their own". However, if you find similar cases, it can give you an idea of what you might be in for.
Regardless of size, most h. start fading from the center out.. you'll see the color dull and appear more grayish. Hang in there.
