Thank you for your query.

1. In Asthma, there is bronchospasm. This makes exhaling air difficult.

2. The treatment of Asthma requires more than Montek LC. Bronchodilators and steroid nebulizers are also required.

3. Get a chest specialist's opinion. An auscultation, chest X-ray, skin prick tests for allergy and Spirometry ( Pulmonary Function Tests) will be required.

4. Many diseases can mimic Asthma. Allergy cannot be cured, only controlled. Hence these investigations are important. Kindly write back with the reports.

I hope that I have answered your queries. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.
