Hi Deepthi
You continue those medication as your doctor advised. Avoid exposure to allergenl like house mites, dust, cold air ,smoke,pets,pollens,sprays ,paints as they aggravate the problem and causes bronchospasm. Be in regular follow up with your doctor so that he will modify the treatment according to your child complaints and to make the child more comfortable and free from this type of episodes.
