Hi Partha
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
In a person with Bronchial asthma , an upper respiratory tract infection should be treated cautiously , as it could worsen asthma.I advose you to visit your Physician and get her examined.On examination , the severity of infection can be known and thus choice of drugs can be taken.
You can expect your doctor to offer you an antibiotic , an antihistaminic , an inhaler to relieve her symptoms.Prescription of drugs in posts is not accepted by HealthcareMagic.
Take care.

YOU SHOULD CONT RX FOR LONG TERM EVEN AFTER TREAT ACUTE ATTACK. ALSO GO FOR ALLERGY TESTS AND IMMUNOTHERAPY FOR LONG TERM REMMISION
