In brief: It is a matter

Of doctors preference.
The main ones used today are either steroid injections or dehydrated alcohol. My preference is the latter. I have found them to be highly effective with no side effects reported at least by my patient population.

In brief: No

I used Marcaine and celestone (betamethasone) worked for me.

Usually steroid is mixed with anesthetic in the injection.
