Steriods should be avoided in children bt can be used with precautions in many conditions like allergic asthma or cough, nephrotic syndrome , WALRI, urticaria, TBM many others.

I avoid using it due to its tremendous side effects. But can be given in case of severe allergic condition. Severe lrti or urti. My choice is prednisolone.
