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 years.it 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.

you can undergo a modified skip prick testing and go for sub linguial immunotherapy

I have allergic asthma. Once I was prescribed to take montair fx along with combihale and asthalin for 30 days. I was suggested to use asthalin liberally. After the course, my wheezing was down till a month or so. But gradually over the time the condition is that, i have it everyday. One day I took montair fx and it reduced for two days. I have been taking it since then. Now, wheezing doesn t reduce with the intake of inhalers. It reduces only with montair fx. What are the side effects of prolonged use of montair fx ? Any other remedy to cure/reduce my asthma attacks ?

Hello, I have a 4 1/2 month old baby who is breathing at 72 breaths per minute resting. She was 38weeks at delivery and, while small (2.75 kg) was pretty good for a twin. Her growth is fine and development normal. I am just concerned about breath rate as our 3 year old has bronchiolitis obliterans and is oxygen dependent. I think we did not diagnose her problems early enough. Any advice?

My daughter is almost 18 and has been having trouble with her breathing since she was 13! like she can t can t catch her breath,even while just watching TV. Used to have trouble getting to sleep, now she can but wakes up extremely exhausted like she never slept! Doctor has said many things over the years...she is growing, needs to exercise, nothing changed when she finished growing and got more exercise. Had a spirometry test-neg result. blood test said her white blood count was a little low. But no real answers! She is irritable most times, due to lack of sleep. She is very frustrated! He gave her nose spray, still no change. what about her adrenal glands? can you help?

Hi, my 18months old son (12.8kg) was just prescribed Flucloxacillin oral solution 125mg, 2.5ml 4x daily. He s been having red rush on his face around his mouth. It started as 1or 2 single spots with white center about 10 days ago and it spreading into red areas with white spots, which are constantly wet as my son is dribbling a lot. He was prescribed Fucidin Cream last friday. We ve been applying this 3xdaily for last 3 days but it s not getting better. My son has asthma and is using Beclometasone inhaler 2x daily. My son also wasn t very well last weak some respiratory viral infection. My question is: How long does it take for the Fucidin cream to start working? And if my son starts taking the Flucloxacillin antibiotics, can he be exposed to the sun as we are going on a beach holiday in 5 days? Many thanks for your answer, S.
