Asthma Has Not Relapsed For A Long Time, Has It Been Cured?
hello, I want to ask
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Bronchial asthma (asthma) occurs because the respiratory tract becomes inflamed due to a hypersensitivity (allergic) reaction. This condition is characterized by respiratory distress, in the form of tightness, heaviness in the chest, coughing, and episodic and repeated breath sounds (wheezing), especially worsening at night.
The cause of asthma is not known with certainty. However, according to many experts, this condition is closely related to genetic (congenital) factors associated with atopic tendencies. Asthma sufferers often also experience other diseases related to atopic, such as allergic rhinitis and atopic dermatitis.
Because the exact cause is unknown, even asthma cannot be cured. However, recurrence (exacerbation) of asthma can be suppressed so that sufferers can carry out normal activities like other healthy people. The trick is to avoid the triggers of asthma. This condition is what you may be experiencing at this time. Some of the common triggers for asthma are:
Environmental conditions and weather, for example cold, dusty, smoky, humid, spring Respiratory tract infections Fatigue due to activity or exercise Consumption of certain foods or drugs, for example seafood, eggs Psychological stress, etc. It is good if your current asthma attack is very severe relapse rarely. In addition to avoiding asthma triggers exposure, asthma recurrence can also be suppressed by regularly exercising, calming the mind so as not to stress, staying away from smoking, and also taking regular doctor's medications (drugs to prevent asthma attacks, for example the corticosteroid class, theophylline, or leukotriene receptor antagonists. ).
Continue to live a healthy lifestyle so that asthma recurrences can be minimized. If then your asthma recurs, don't delay to see your doctor right away. Usually, the doctor will prescribe several types of drugs to relieve your asthma attack, for example in the form of a short acting class or a long acting beta 2 agonist.
Hope it helps ..
