Hello Dr My son is 10weeks old, had a cold

Hello Dr
My son is 10weeks old, had a cold and cough with wheezing and shallow breathing. Dr diagnosed bronchitis and prescribed Alex syrup, ambrodil syrup and started nebulizer initially every 2 hours, then every 4 hours. We went for a follow-up after 2 days, baby seems to be slightly better. But slight wheezing still present. So Dr asked to continue nebulizer and prescribed defcort syrup. I'm concerned that this is a steroid and don't want to use it on my 2.5 month old baby. Can I skip the steroid?
