In brief: No

I am assuming you mean oral corticosteroids? You can get topical for skin issues, but not oral for inflammation(and you cannot ingest the topical form).
Oral corticosteroids can have serious side effects and need to prescribed in specific ways, so its safest to do this with a doc prescribing.
