I did lip fillers 6 yrs ago & I got bumps. My dr. is insisting he used Restylane. Now, he wants to inject cortisone into my lips to get rid of the bumps.
Thanks for the query to H.C.M. Forum.
Before any cortisone injection ,I think you should consult one more dermatologist and get his opinion (2nd) and if possible avoid cortisone. Upload picture of lips over this site.
hi im 10 weeks pregnant and my tail bone cramps even painful while walking
Postural variation and local analgesic application and local cortisone injection help in treating the pain of Coccydynia of pregnancy. Removal of coccyx is an alternative when the pain is excruciating. Analgesics may be given from the second trimester onward with caution and some discretion. Please avoid prolonged sitting and use a well-padded seat. Hope your query is clarified. Take care.
