Hello dear,

Asthma is caused due to broncho-constriction (obstruction of smaller airway passages) which is indicative of Hyper-responsiveness of air passages.

Management consists of:

1. Inhalers- provide symptomatic relief by causing broncho-dilation (dilating the smaller airway passages, relieving the obstruction & increasing airflow to lungs)
So, you can use it whenever you are having an acute attack.

2. Montelukast preparations- used as a maintenance therapy to relieve symptoms of seasonal allergies & asthma.

3. Antihistamines can also be used to provide symptomatic relief.

4. Protect yourself from exposure to cold, dust or other allergens.

If symptoms still persist, it will be better to consult a Pulmonologist.

Wishing you a Good Health.
Let me know if I need to clarify further.
Thanks & take care.
