Hi,I gone through your query and understand your concern.

Your symptoms are suggestive of asthma.Would you please tell me when was your asthma first diagnosed?

If I were the treating physician,I would do the objective test(spirometry) to confirm the diagnosis.Then I would advise you to:
>Avoid triggers(eg.cold,dust pollen etc) as possible
>Bronchodilator inhaler(eg.Salbutamol) as required to relieve breathlessness
>Steroid inhaler to control frequent and further attack
>Antihistamine like cetrizine if requied.

Since this is a prescription medicine ,so my advise is :please consult with a respiratory medicine specialist to confirm the diagnosis and get proper treatment accordingly.

Hope this helps you.If you have further queries,please do not hesitate in writing us.Wish you good health.
