what exactly is the difference between asthma and allergy asthma.
Difference between asthma and allergic asthma explained below in details.
Hello dear and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
I understand your concern.
Allergy is more related to the reaction of our immune system.
Asthma is a lung disease which can be related to allergy, but also many other factors such as stress, medication, smoke, and infections of the airway.
The symptoms can be the same but the treatment is different.
The symptoms of your husband seem to be related to an allergic asthma.
The symptoms in this case appear after breathing in the allergens.
The treatment usually consists in antihistamines and corticosteroids.
Fesenra is a specific medication to treat the eosinophilic asthma.
To treat the mucus I would recommend a mucolitic.
There are many other mucolitics such as Guaifenesin or counter (Mucinex).
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
