Hi Thaya,

Welcome to Healthcaremagic Forum,
There is no shortcut to success. Never take those steroids as they can cause you long term side effects later on. Eat wholesome food, avoid stress and exercise lightly. You will definitely put on weight.
Good Luck

I have been using steroid scalp application for my psoriasis for many years by now and this is the only medication that seems to be working on my condition. I only apply it when redness and itchiness occur. I have learned lately that using this type of medication which contains steroids may have serious side effects such as the effect on normal production of steroids in the body. What would that exactly mean? What are the symptoms in such cases? Does it have anything to do with metabolism or overweight issues?

Hi. My child has been suffering from cough and cold for the past 4 days and she is 20 months old now. She has been going to a day care since she was 14 nmonths old and has had repeated bouts of cough and cold ever since. But this time, she was breathhless and when we took her to the doctor, the doc advised asthalin inhaler and said this could be the onset of asthma. I am a little wary of giving her the inhaler as according to me if she doesnt have asthma then the treatment might unecessarily be strong for her mild body. Is asthalin a steroid ? Please advise urgently. Thanks
