Deltasone (Prednisone) is a steroid that prevents the release of substances in the body that cause inflammation. This medication is used to treat allergic reactions, severe asthma, arthiritis. It can also be used to treat steroid deficiency in the body, certain blood disorders, certain types of cancer and ulcerative colitis.
