How This Drug Works
Corticosteriods
Corticosteroids provide anti-inflammatory relief by helping the body make proteins that decrease inflammatory chemical messengers and reduce symptoms like swelling, redness, pain and others.
"Corticosteroids provide anti&#45;inflammatory relief for many different conditions and come in drug forms such as tablets, inhalers, eye&#45;drops, and others. <br><br> The body normally responds to inflammation or cell damage by producing white blood cells and chemical messengers to fight an infection or repair damage. However, in some cases, the surge of all of these substances to a localized area of the body can cause symptoms of inflammation and damage to the bodyâ¬"s tissues. <br><br> Corticosteroids bind to steroid receptors inside cells and form a tightly joined group. When the steroid&#45;receptor &#34;group&#34; is activated, it moves inside the cell&#39;s nucleus where it is able to control the cellâ¬"s ability to make proteins. The proteins that are made decrease inflammatory chemical messengers and reduce symptoms of inflammation like swelling, redness, pain and others."
