Hi well come to HCM.
Astha is genettically related disease.ONE can prevent or reduce the attacks of asthma
But can not cure. To avoid attacks submit for allergy testing and avoid exposure to
allergens, Low dose steroid in maintainance dose in inhaler form can also help you to
prevent the attack. thanks

Allergen induced wheezing attacks are common up to some age. If u prevent exposure to allergens during early childhood and prevent attacks, Ur child usually will overgrow asthma attacks in adult age.
