Hey, I’ve recently had a massive flare up of my asthma and have struggled, I’ve been given steroids (preds) and have been on them for almost 14days now today is the last day I’m aloud to take them. Since jan I’ve been on these steroids 3 times. My doctor has just decided to put me on fostair 200/6 and it’s definitely helped although I’m not keen on the side affects but I’m definitely willing to give it a go because my asthma is already feeling under much more control and I’m breathing much better.
I work at a school as a 1:1 with a child with ASD so keeping socially distanced is hard. I’m really concerned of my risk of catching COVID we’ve had 5 cases of teaching staff already. I know the shielding advise has changed but with the amount of steroids I’ve been taking and I’m now on not sure if I’m meant to be off?
