Is steroid healthy?

Depends

Steroids
For medical reasons, specific durations and doses of steroids are helpful. But recreationally or for body building, they are not healthy. Steroids have serious long-term side effects even those used in medicine.

Nope

Lupin Pharmaceuticals will be introducing a corticosteroid nasal spray in the US for adults and teenagers. The active ingredient is the same corticosteroid used in Nasacort AQ and is indicated for seasonal & perennial allergic rhinitis. Lupin is also a flowering plant whose only allergy relevance is that flour made from lupin when eaten may trigger anaphylaxis in persons allergic to peanut. Wow!
