Thank you for asking at HCM.

I went through your history and would like to make suggestions for you as follows:

1. If your wheezing is not improved by taking albuterol, my first suggstion would be to get examined by your doctor, as it suggests a possibility of severe exacerbation/severe symptoms of asthma.

Your doctor would examined your chest with stethoscope and will determine how much severe your asthma symptoms are.

2. In that case, he may prescribe you corticosteroids for a few days in addition to your inhalers.

3. After improvement, your doctor will decide whether you need regular inhalers, depending upon how frequent and how severe your asthma is.

4. Please avoid cold drinks and icy foods till you have such symptoms. Please take light diet, and plenty of warm fluids if possible.

Hope above suggestions will be helpful to you.

Should you have any further query, please feel free to ask at HCM.

Wish you a very good recovery and the best of the health ahead.

Thank you & Regards,
I find this answer helpful
