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.

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, 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

A 150 lb,62 year old man had a chronic productive cough, exertional dyspnea, mild cyanosis, and marked slowing of forced expiration. His pulmonary function and laboratory tests follow: Frequency 16 breaths/min alveolar ventilation 4.2 L/min (Assume 150 ml anatomical dead space) vital capacity 2.2 L functional residual capacity 4.0 L total lung capacity 5.2 L maximum inspiratory flow rate 250 L/min maximum expiratory flow rate 20 L/min PaO2 62 mm Hg PaCO2 39 mm Hg Pulmonary function tests after bronchodilator therapy: frequency 16 breaths/min alveolar ventilation 4.35 L/min VC 2.4 L FRC 4.0 L TLC 5.2 L Max inspiratory flow rate 250 L/min max expiratory flow rate 23 L/min PaO2 62 mm Hg PaCO2 38 mm Hg Questions: 1. What is the disorder this man has? 2. Is this primarily a restrictive or obstructive disorder? Why? 3. Why is the bronchodilator therapy ineffective in this man? 4. What causes hypoxemia? 5. Calculate the residual volume (RV) for this person before and after the bronchodilator therapy. 6. What is the cause of this altered RV? 7. Calculate the tidal volume (TV) for this man before and after the bronchodilator therapy. 8. Is each TV normal or altered? 9. Calculate the minute ventilation for this person before and after the bronchiodialator therapy? 10. Is each minute ventilation normal or altered?

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.
