My son had been fighting a cold virus which seems to have triggered some tics. His dr prescribed a steroid burst but today his symptoms seem a little better. What will steroids do and should I watch and wait until symptoms are worse? I'm so scared for him /  will steroids prevent another flare? He had ivig in June. Thx

Steroids can help, but some have reported symptoms getting a little worse first before they got better.

My own experience is that they didn't do anything - so that is also a possibility.

I don't think steroids will prevent another flare in the long term, because they are typically only administered for the short term.
