Brief Answer: For short period it is not harmful. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Thanks for your query. In Bell's palsy corticosteroid(Wysolone) is given to reduce swelling and inflammation of facial nerve. It minimise nerve damage and thereby improve the outcome. Although it has a lot of side effects but for short period and with judicious use it is not harmful. So do not worry, continue the treatment under supervision of your doctor. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Wishing you speedy recovery... Take care.
