Thanks for writing to health care magic.

Multivitamin tablet will be useful if a child is having vitamin deficiency. That short stature could be because of the steroid.

A proper measurement is required to identify if he is having short stature or not.

Steroid sparing drugs like levamisole may be required.

Continue to ask further queries as required.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
