The steroid is working for about 2 weeks to decrease inflammation.  It  is a good idea to use some warm compresses as well after the injection.  A second injection can be done after 2 weeks.  If you see no improvement after these then you can consider excision.  Always good to wait since these will frequently resolve slowly over time.
