Does Kenalog Get Rid of Swelling from Allergic Reaction?

I had juvederm two months ago i hated it and my philtrim (skin above upperlp) looked long and strange must be the way she injectedd as i looked like that after three weeks so had the hyalase it been a month after that now and though my lip shape is back to normal i am still swollen. My philtrim is all swollen and still looks long and wierd. I dont know whether it becuase i had an allergic reaction to the hyalase or the juvederm but the swelling is not getting any better. would kenalog help?

Kenalog and swelling


If you feel that the area is swollen, especially if tender, a shot of intramuscular kenalog might help. If you have no contraindications you doctor would probably be willing to give that a shot(no pun intended).
