Swelling and redness won't go away?

I had restylane in my lips and nose lines. I've had them before without problems. I had the usual swelling and bruising which was ok. 5 days later my upper lip and nasal lines ballooned and went red. Saw the doctor who gave me prednisolone. It's now 2 weeks after filla and on more steroids as still swelling. Is this normal?

Most likely Allergy

This sounds like most likely an allergic reaction either to Restylane (even though you have had it previously without a problem) or to a contamination of the restylane.
I would suggest to follow up with your injector.
