Can asthma meds (inhaled cortisteroids) be used to treat frequent attacks of angioedema with swollen airways?

In brief: Unfortunately no

Angioedema threatening the airways can only be helped first by Epinephrine (adrenline) , then by high dose systemic steroids, inhaled corticosteroids won't help the acute phase.
