doctor1 MD four month old son has just been diagnosed with inflammatory airway disease. His chest xray apparently showed that his airway is inflammed. Our doctor had already put him on ventilin as he suspects asthma. He just called and said that he has seen the xrays and he now wants our son to take prednisone in the form of an inhaler to reduce the inflammation. He did say that prednisone is usually not prescribed in babies under the age of 6mths. We don t know what to do. Is it safe for our son to take the prednisone this young?
