Corticosteroid medications work by stopping your immune system from overreacting to triggers; basically, blocking certain proteins that cause swelling and inflammation. No matter how or where it is used, prednisolone works by inhibiting these responses - which can help ease uncomfortable systems and reduce the potentially harmful effects of inflammation.

What is the typical starting dose of prednisolone?
