Hi and thanks for the query,
Asthma is a disease classified as a chronic obstructive bronchopneumopathy. This means that it stays for a long time, and also has an inflammatory and allergic aspect. Family history and specific diseases like acute bronchiolitis in childhood could predispose one to getting ashtma. Once it is there, there is no magic one drug or anti biotic to treat it.
However, there is a particular ascernal of drugs and lifestyle changes that could avoid the frequency of these attacks. Asthma triggers differ from person to person and need to be avoid. In your case, I suggest you should actually keep very warm, and it would be great if your work schedule could be modified if possible. Your nasal spray to use during attacks should always be with you where ever you go.
Consult a pulmonologist for a proper treatment plan. Success in treatment relies on avoiding asthma triggers and complying to the treatment plan.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
