Hi Kavita,

To control asthma, one has to take steroids. Steroids do have side effects and that`s why inhaled form of steroids are prescribed which have very minimal side effects as a very small quantity is absorbed in the body. Therefore you must ensure that child takes these inhalers regularly and oral steroids can be avoided as these are given when symptoms worsen and have much more side effects. Instil healty habits in child by following a routine and healthy eating habits and avoiding junk food as much as you can. If still you are concerned about his growth, kindly consult his paeditrician.
