Q: Are inhaled steroids effective for a postviral cough? Evidence-based answer: No. Inhaled corticosteroids (ICS) don’t improve postviral cough in adults with subacute (3-8 weeks) or chronic (>8 weeks) cough, adolescents with a history of asthma but without recent asthma activity, or children with a history of episodic viral wheezing without asthma (strength of recommendation [SOR]: B, preponderance of small randomized controlled trials [RCTs]).
