I'm probably asking something that's already been asked and answered, in which case I apologise!
I was on a short 3 week course of prednisolone at the end of Jan beginning of Feb, I remember the leaflet saying something about avoiding chickenpox and lower immune system, is this just while taking the steroids or for some time afterwards? If the latter then how long, cos my friend's son has just come down with chickenpox.
Also what is it about steroid treatment that means you have to mention it to dentists and doctors for upto a year after taking them? Does it affect some part of your body for that long?
I keep meaning to ask my nurse that question, but consistently forget!
