Is it safe to keep injecting hydro to dissolve nodule from Restylane and Voluma?

I have had 4 injections of hydro to dissolve a nodule from restylane and voluma. This is a month that I've had an infection. Is it safe to try steroids?

Hyaluronidase to dissolve filler after infection

An infection should be treated with antibiotics AND hyaluronidase to remove the filler. Just removing the filler with hyaluronidase won't take away the infection. So yes, you need a prescription.
