Corticosteroids are the anti-inflammatory agents that inhibit the inflammation or swelling in the airways of the lungs. They are used mostly as inhalers in chronic pulmonary disease.
Corticosteroids are a man-made version of hormones normally produced by the adrenal glands (two small glands that sit on top of the kidneys). Corticosteroids are available in different forms, including: tablets (oral steroids); injections – which can be into blood vessels, joints or muscles; inhalers – such as mouth or nasal sprays; lotions, gels or creams (topical steroids).
