Hi there ...

Thank you for the question and I am sorry to hear about your issues .

Prednisolone can have negative effect over stomach it ulcerates , damages stomach badly .

It would be ideal for you to overcome this issue with IV Injections of Proton pump inhinitors like Omerpazole or Esomeprazole .

Upper GI Endoscopy should be done to see your stomach .

So ask your treating Physicians to put you on IV PPI which will reduce stomach acid production .

Regards ***** ***** well soon .

Thanks .
