Dr. Levine answers: In my opinion, the use of steroid injection is contraindicated as it can cause tissue atrophy, disruption of the normal tissue planes between the plaque and the overlying nerves and blood vessels that supply the penis, and lastly the historic papers on this therapy have not demonstrated any significant benefit. Therefore, I would strongly suggest not using any form of injectable steroid.
