What do asthma steroid pills do?

Steroid inhalers and pills prevent the inflammation that occurs in asthma, thus reducing the buildup of mucus that contributes to bronchiole obstruction! Any Suggestions here?

    HI,I am so sorry to hear of your moms health problem!I also have sever asthma! The antibiotics are great, but should only be taken when the Doctor is sure, your mom has an infection, and yes she will get better! Prednizone is good to open the air way, but should be used only when the doctor gives it to her, also she should cut the last three to five tablets in half and start to cut down on this medication little by little, never stop this medication cold turkey! The doctor should have told her this but just in case, I wanted to tell you, OK ! I am on antibiotics right now also, because I do have bronchitiswhich is an infection of the bronchial tubes in the lungs! The Doctor also gives me an inhaler called Advair, it is a powdered steroid, it is very good! Your mom might want to ask her Doctor about this medication if she does not have it OK ?? I hope she gets better soon, I hope this helped some??
