Possibly, but there is no consensus on this. Steroids used for asthma treatment such as pulmicort (inhaled or oral) may possibly temporarily stunt growth in children. This is from drugs.com:
"Cases of growth suppression have been reported for inhaled corticosteroids including post-marketing reports for Pulmicort RESPULES."
Webmd website states that pulmicort may stunt growth in children, but that it doesn't affect final adult height:
"Children may be more sensitive to the effects of too much corticosteroid medication. This medication may temporarily slow down a child's rate of growth if used for a long time. However, it will probably not affect final adult height. Monitor your child's height periodically."
It also states:
"The administration of inhaled budesonide via a different dry-powder inhaler in doses up to 800 mcg/day (mean daily dose 445 mcg/day) or via a pressurized metered-dose inhaler in doses up to 1200 mcg/day (mean daily dose 620 mcg/day) to 216 pediatric patients (age 3 to 11 years) for 2 to 6 years had no significant effect on statural growth compared with non-corticosteroid therapy in 62 matched control patients. However, the long-term effect of inhaled budesonide on growth is not fully known."
You have very less adverse effects of the steroids, which are inhaled as compared to the advantages. At times, your physician gives you short term oral or injectable steroids. Again the advantages far outweigh the adverse effects.

You should consult your doctor to see if it is healthy to introduce testosterone replacement treatment or HGH - Human Growth Hormones - while taking steroids, whether for health or bodybuilding.
Depends on why and what type of steroids you are taking. Persons who take them to improve their asthma may need to take them long term. If you are taking them for pain and inflamation, such as in arthritis, then you will be getting periodic injections or short term treatments. If you have had some sort of transplant, you may need to take steroids for the rest of your life, to prevent tissue rejection. If you are taking steroids to enhance your body-building or your performance in sports, you won't be taking them too long. You will develop all kinds of health problems and you will ultimately die.
When you stop using steroids, the effects of it never actually disappear from your body, unless you have been taking huge amounts of steroids for a long time. Even though you will lose your muscle mass if you stop working out at all, studies have shown that steroids do permanent changes to your muscle tissue.
