What is the cure for allergic asthma?

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.

Allergic asthma is one of the chronic conditions so it will keep triggering till the time the allergen is around you like dust, pollen grain, cold weather etc.Inhalers are the only long term usage device as medicine like cetrizine will make you feel drosy the whole day.If you are in Bangalore, then you can meet Dr. Rao around Brookefiled, Whitefield area.He is supposed to be the only board certified allergy specialist in Bangalore who has returned to India after many years as a professor at University of California,LA. This is about allopathy.Now many people claim about alternative therapies but there's no scientific evidence of it working it.You can try switching to basil tea (tulsi tea) and avoiding the asthma initiating irritants like dust by covering your nose when you go out.

What you have been given is a proven and good treatment.There's nothing like getting addicted to it as it's a common myth.I know of people using inhalers for helps you lead a normal life and there's nothing to my knowledge apart from medicine that can help you.sudden asthma attacks can be much more fatal than what you had and much more troublesome than the side effects of any medicine so you continue with this.
