Thanks for your query.

I will try my best to provide you with best possible professional recommendations to your questions.

Allergic asthma is the most common type of asthma. The most important thing in allergic asthma is to find out the cause and avoid or to sensitize to it.

Allergens, which are small enough to be inhaled deep into the lungs, include windblown pollen from trees, grasses, and weeds mold spores and mold fragment animal dander and saliva dust mite feces, cockroach feces.

An important part of controlling your allergic asthma is to limit your exposure to allergens. Determining the allergens to which you've become sensitized, and then taking steps to minimize your exposure to them, is likely to improve your allergic asthma control.

Regarding medications you are already taking them. I advice try to find out the cause and avoid them, like try using face mask while going out, avoid the pollen and if you have pets avoid them for few days.

Yet again, I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
