facial swelling and irritation is one of the major side effects of steroids
due to water retention in the body.
prolonged use of prednisone
also lowers the normal immune responsiveness of the patient.
the oral thrush
is the result of this.
see a dental surgeon and let him decide how to deal with the present situation. indiscriminate use of broad spectrum antibiotics can aggravate the oral thrush.
wish your husband a quick recovery.
