My 1 year old has a cough and flu like symptoms. My doctor prescribed breathing treatments and oral steriods. What do you think about about oral steriods in a young child?

I think that if a child needs them due to breathing problems, they are a good thing. It won't hurt him. There are side effects for some kids though - increased appetite, trouble sleeping, nightmares, etc. But, to help with a serious illness, it is needed.
