A couple days ago I brought her in and the doctor thought she might have allergies and prescribed her an allergy medication and oral steroids. I'm very conservative when it comes to medication and steroids in infants scares the crap out of me.
The allergy prescription won't be available until tomorrow evening. I'd hoped to start those first and see if they would help without the need of steroids. But her breathing is SO bad today. AND YES, IVE GIVEN THEM TO HER. I JUST WANT INPUT, REASSURANCE, ETC FROM THOSE WITH EXPERIENCE
So about steroids. Have you given them to your very young child? Were there side effects that outweighed the benefit. Did they work immediately or do they require prolonged use to work? If I give her a dose now do I have to complete the series like with antibiotics?
Thank you for not attacking me. I'm only looking to help my child.
