Prednisone is a corticosteroid, a medication similar to cortisone or steroid, which works on the immune system to help reduce swelling, redness, itching and allergic reactions.
Steroids, medically known as corticosteroids, can be used to reduce inflammation associated with allergies. They are effective in preventing and treating nasal congestion, sneezing, itching and runny nose due to seasonal or year-round allergies. In addition, they can also reduce inflammation and swelling caused by other types of allergic reactions.
Corticosteroids are a form of steroid used to treat swelling and inflammation caused by allergies, as well as allergic asthma. It is important to note that they are not the same types of products that some athletes abuse. Corticosteroids can be used for a variety of allergies and can be taken for the short or long term, depending on the severity of the condition. Steroid injections for allergies use long-acting corticosteroids to reduce inflammation in the body.
This reduces, and sometimes eliminates, the symptoms of allergies. To be eligible for a steroid injection, a person must see a doctor and have an allergy or other condition that steroids can effectively treat. If this is not the case, alternative treatments may need to be tried before the doctor prescribes a steroid injection.
