he evaluation is that I suffer from asthma, I'm scare to take the perdisone due to all the bad reviews. And all the other steroids, If it is just an upper respiratory infection.

Welcome, henessy.

It sounds like you already have your diagnosis and treatment. I hope you will do what your doctor told you.

Just because some people have reactions to medications doesn't mean you will.

No, antibiotics do not relieve inflammation.

Let us know how you are doing, and best wishes.
