I was given corticosteroid ear drops as a kid and it made my ear canals swell temporarily. I am currently being tested for rheumatoid arthritis as an adult. My doctor prescribed me a 5 day trial run of prednisone and I'm concerned about another reaction, this time not so localized and perhaps more severe. She's aware of the previous reaction but basically said "let's hope that doesn't happen again"... Should I risk the reaction?
