User :   hamm, you mean I should visit a doctor in the morning
User :   or can have PERF and come back to you
Doctor :   you need to have the following
Doctor :   PEFR and the chest auscultation
Doctor :   chest auscultation to know any residual wheeze and ronchi
Doctor :   for that you need to visit the doctor
User :   ok
User :   do you think, if I took steam
User :   a couple of times in a day
User :   do mornign walk
User :   and take just the inhaler
User :   that will work
User :   ?
Doctor :   inhaler will definitely provide the relief
Doctor :   steam and morning walk i dont think it will work
Doctor :   as you are getting the wheeze in the morning it is the morning cold air
Doctor :   which is producing the bronchospasm
Doctor :   so the morning walk and exercise at this moment might aggravate the symptoms
User :   hamm, so I have to meet a physician

User :   ok tx
User :   one more thing
