Thank you for consulting healthcaremagic.
You must stop using steroids as they have alot of side effects. They can prone you to many infections as they weaken immunity so body's self-defence becomes weaker. Steroids can lead to weight gain, diabetes, osteoporosis, poor healing of wounds, & several other complications. As a physician I would advice you to quit them. Have a good day
