Greetings from

I am Dr Sourav Chakraborty and i will be helping you with your query

Asthma is a disease where there is hyper reactivity of your respiratory tract to particular pathogen which could be an allergen , foreign body and infection.

It may trigger asthmatic attack by narrowing your airways and you may feel breathless/ breathing problem

The medications your doctor has provided for you , one of them is primarily is to relieve you from recurrent allergic attacks and the inhaler is to improve air entry through your hyper responsive air way so that you don't get any more breathing trouble.

Follow your doctor's advice meticulously.

Hope i have been able to help you.
Take Care.

Thanks for your query and Welcome to HCM community.

You have got Asthma resulting from Allergy... that is you have got both.

Let me explain. There are Aeroallergens in the air like house dust, pollen, various spores etc that you inhale during breathing. Your airway hyperresponsd while other persons' airway don't. this hyperresponsiveness is the allergy.

Hope, you got your answer.
