After a three day round of high dose steroids is the immune system suppressed? And if so, how long does that last. Should extra caution be taken in public places with avoiding germs? Thanks.
There is minimal if any immunosuppression with a three day course of steroids. Unless your immune system is suppressed for other reasons we do not recommend any isolation.
