Hello dear and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Hydrocortisone 5mg will reduce the inflammation in the airway.

So, you can use it to help with the difficulty of breathing.

Of course, to continue the treatment you should consult your doctor.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Kind regards!
