Can 4 yo get a steroid injection or po? She has had allergies and/or cold (per dr) going on 2 months now. Neither claritin or xyryec and Delsym..

Rarely indicated. Children are not just small adults. The steroid injections many adults get for sinus relief, etc. are rarely indicated in kids.They can impair their developing immune system.Steroid nasal sprays are relatively low risk and often help. Some kids with asthma flare ups will take a 4-5 day oral burst but that is condition specific.
