Default pulsed dye laser vs. steroid injection on ulcerated lip H

Our 8 week old has an ulcerated H on her lower lip. It has interfered with feeding, so we are currently using a special needs feeder. We have been administering wound care, so it is slowly improving. We have seen a plastic surgeon who originally wanted to just observe. He finally got us started with the wound care and wants to see how it looks Friday and at that time may suggest steroid injections. We also sought a second opinion from a derm who highly recommended pulsed dye laser treatments. We are.leaning towards the laser as we are concerned about the side effects of steroids. We believe her H is still in the proliferative stage, although we have not seen a big change in size in the last two weeks or so. Any advice or experiences would be welcomed and appreciated.
