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.

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

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.

Hi im a 25 year old female in the military. I have been ill since the winter with a cough and cold that i couldnt shake. I got rid of the cold but was diagnosed with Acute Tracheitus and put in Steroids and a Ventolin inaler. I returned to work and finished my steroids and thought that I was ok. I went for a run and collapsed and lost consciousness. I was brought to hospital and they tested me for everything. They thought there was something wrong with my heart so they done an ECG, an echo and blood tests. They also attached me to a heart monitor. The xrays showed my lungs to be over inflated so they sent me home with paracetemol and an appointment to have a lung function test. I hadnt heard anything from my consultant in regards to my results so I called her office until I got a response from her. She told me that my lung function test was completley normal and that there was no evidence of any Asthma, that I am perfectly fine that I should return to work. I explained to her that I was feeling quite tired and lethargic, as I was in hospital and that breatthing some days is hard, returning to work in such a physical envoirnment concerned me, as it did my Army doctor. She said she would send the results to him, and that I would recieve an appointment to see her in July as she had not recieved my heart monitor results yet. Why do I feel like there is being something over looked here? It feels like I was a major inconveinience to her for phoning and she made me feel like I was a hypochondriac? I dont like being out of work, im not a lazy person but I want to avoid, at all costs, anything that will put me back into how bad I fet the day I collapsed. Please help.
