Asthma is a chronic disease many times allergic in nature but some times no allergy could be detected
but it can be controlled by medications and following advise of doctor. As far as treatment is concerned inhalation therapy gives best result with minimum side effect.In majority of asthma patients,but where single allergic agent can be identified it can be treated by immune therapy,and hopefully patient may be cured of asthma.Remember this is true for specific patient and not for all asthma patient.I would like to know age of your daughter as many asthmatic when grow up it may go spontaneously.To moniter asthma you may do PEFR daily and take pecautionary therapy. See a Chest Physician.

I MUST ADD ONLY SINGLE POINT IN AGGREMENT WITH DR.YADAV CLEARCUT EXPLANATION :
MOST PEOPLE FEAR FROM INHALERS AND PREFER ORAL DRUGS,THIS IS A MYTH AND IT MUST BE KNOWN THAT INHALERS ALSO DELIVER DRUG,BUT THE DOSES ARE FAR LESS THAN TAKEN ORALLY.
THOUGH THE DOSES ARE LESS THEY REACH LUNG FASTLY AND THERE IS LESSER CHANCES OF SIDE EFFECTS WITH CORRECT DOSE AND OF COURSE PROPER TECHNIQUE,SPACEHALERS CAN BE USED BY CHILDREN AND OLD ADULT WHO HAVE PROBLEM IN TRAINING OR COORDINATION.

Pulmonologist Dr. Manoj Yadav's  Response
Asthma is a disease of the airways. There is hyperreactive airways and in response to allergen, the airways go into spasm and airway narrow.
Some patients may be allergic to few specific allergens and if identified and avoided, there is possibility of complete CONTROL.
In most patient the allergens are multiple, and identifing them is tedious. in these pts. even avoiding the known allergens helps in decresing the symptoms.
Another important point is that more than 90% patients of asthma, do not take there inhalers correctly, which leads to inadequate dose and inadequate response.
The trick is to use the correct drug, in the correct dose for the correct duration along with allergen identifiaction and avoidance.
Most of my patients who have done so are very well controlled and some, I can proudly say, have discontinued their medication including inhalers.
Remember each person is unique and there is no "one size fits all" treatment for asthma.
Also Asthma is 100% controllable in most patients and for some patients it is equal to a cure once off medications.

There is no permanent cure of asthma but a large no of patients especially in younger age group do benefit from allergy testing and subsequently from desensitization. either they do well without medicines or the doses r significantly decreased

to the ones who think it is cureable,



What makes you think it is cureable? I have seen a specialist and over 200 doctors since i was born and all said the same thing it is uncureable only controlable. Why should i beleave 4 people online. And if there is what is it?! If there truely is a cure then i have to know what it is!



They only reason i doubt it is because for 15 yrs i have been told the same thing! And since my older brother has it my family have all been told there is none even longer! So i am kind of hard to convince that there is but if there is i need to know!



Thank you

As doctor use to say there is no treatment of allergy in Allopath, only it can be controlled.
Allopath (antibiotics) will not give permanent cure but we can improve our immune (resistance) to fight with any infection and can get permanent cure.

But permanent cure is possible believe me.
I had very serious problem and I am cured with in two months.

No doubt this will cost you more than medicine for two months course but it is really worth it.

I am engineer and working in pharmaceutical company as Manager.
My intension behind this write up is to give me self satisfaction by providing and helping people to get permanent cure.

Dr.I.S.Sharma's  Response

a total control of the asthma is equivalent to cure. like people take medicines for Blood pressure, diabetes life long, similarly if you take regular low dose preventive inhalors during the season , i dont think you have to worry about it. inhalor mrdicines being in the microgramme quantity, practically you dont have side effects, i can assure you and as i am practicing asthma, COPD and TB for more than 19 yrs, i can tell you with confidence with scientific evidence.

Hello Doctor the case is about My wife , she has asthma from time to time , but that happens only if her nose nasal passage are blocked , some time both passages some time only one . And her asthma gets worse and worse if it is both . She used a lot of sprays but no great affect until lately she used ... , and it made a different by reducing the mucus in her nose and thus breathing normally most of the time. I read a lot lately about deviated spetrum surgerys and turbinates (i guess ) so we made a ct scan please see below the pictures and tell me if it requires a surgery. http://nextechno.com/Sinus/UpView.JPG http://nextechno.com/Sinus/f1.JPG http://nextechno.com/Sinus/f2.JPG http://nextechno.com/Sinus/f3.JPG

Hi, I suffer from allergic asthma. Recently, I had a severe bout of asthma attack and had been taken to hospital for a checkup. Doctor after examining me stated I had an chronic asthma for the last 4-5 years and prescribed me Esiflo (rota-inhaler) and an aerospacer for use. I am using it for the last 2 months but I do not want to get addicted to the use of the pump. Does anybody knows of any other cure for asthma apart from the medicine, which would help me?? Your suggestion would be of great help to me.

Hello, In November after visiting gym I ve got stuffed and 100% plugged nose, later developed chest caugh, pain, tiredness, thought I might have had pneumonia.. Took a lot of rest, lung teas, herbal tinctures, veget. and fruit juices etc. Lung Xray was OK. 2 weeks of antibiotics didn t clear it up. Up to now having smelly yellowish mucus coming out of my Bronchi s. Much worse after any kind of small walk, excercise. I am very concerned, it feels like infection in my chest that is not going away. Dr. ordered spirometry and metacholine tests, that suggested mild Asthma. Recommended cortison puffers only. I gave sample of yellow mucus - came out as inflamation only. What should I do next? So far I stayed off work last 3 months, taking care of myself, it seems getting slowly better until I go for a little walk when symptoms come back big time. What other test should be done to find out the real cause? I feel, that if it is not cleared, it will be getting worse over time. I used to do a lot of sports here as well as in Europe since childhood, until 3.5 months ago, and I am very worried about the future of this medical issue. Thank You, Radka

My 8 year old daughter is undergoing tests to diagnose asthma. it is well controlled. She has been complaining of chest discomfort. It started very sporadically at first (once per month), but now more regular. It happens when she`s just doing quiet things. She points to either her left or right side, it varies, located just under the breast, more towards the outer chest wall. She describes a pounding sensation and `swirling`....that`s her description. It doesn`t affect her breathing. Is it asthma related, or medication.....she`s on flovent and singulair. Thanks.

My husband complained of shortness of breath. He was sent to get a pulse oximetry on room air. Results showed 80% sat. Dr. was notified and he requested the test be repeated the next day with the same result. (Patient was already using supplmental oxygen.) I told Dr. that my husband seemed to be unconscious most of the time (I could not arouse him), when he was awake, he constantly dropped and spilled things, and he was just sick acting. Patient was sent home. Three days later, my husband was taken to the ER because he couldn t breathe and started having seizures. Dr. said his problems were sudden onset and could not have been diagnosed three days earlier when he was in the doctor s office. He spent 50 days in the hospital, about 40 of them on a ventilator. Could he have been diagnosed earlier than his ER visit based on his test results and symptoms?
