Allergic rhinitis. Prescribed prednisone, nose bloackade, breathing problems. No effect with romilast and seroflo inhalers. Is the steroid bad, advice?

Hi, We live in and since the time we have moved to my wife has developed Allergic Rhinitis . For 11 days doctor prescribed prednisone in order to suppress the nose inflammation and now since that course she is daily feeling the nose blockage. From past some days she is having breathing problems which is making the conditions worse.Even the Romilast (10 mg) tab and Seroflo 100 inhaler is not having much effect. Did the steroid course made the conditions worse because prior to the course of steroids the nose blockage problem was not everyday.Please advice what should be done.

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Short term steroid is unlikely to have caused any worsening lie this - could have been worse without it..
The treatment seems appropriate / May be she has an infection super-added.
A CT scan of sinuses may show underlying problems.
Blood counts may show eosinophilia.
Blood tests to find the cause of allergy and subsequent de-sensitisation may help
Parthenium weed, common in Bangalore, might be contributing.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
