My 1 yo cat developed eosinophilic bumps and received cortisone to treat. Bumps are back. Do I continue cortisone use?

Lincoln has hive like bumps on his "elbows" on his front legs. He doesn't bother with them - no excessive licking or biting, no hair loss. He was treated with cortisone the first week of September and the bumps just came back. While I want him to be as happy and healthy as possible, I'm worried about the prolonged use of cortisone. Is the risk of injecting cortisone every 3 months worth it, if he doesn't seem bothered by the bumps?
