Can Asthma Drug Consumption If Shortness Of Breath During A Cold?
, I have a history of asthma, I happen to be currently experiencing coughs, colds u0026amp; fever, also accompanied by shortness of breath. I have consulted with a doctor at the clinic near where I live, but he said the shortness of breath that I experienced was not an indication of the asthma I had, the prescription given to me was not accompanied by medication to reduce shortness of breath that I natural now. What I want to ask, is it okay for me to take an asthma medication that was given to me before, even though the doctor said there was no indication that my asthma had recurred? Thank you.

The condition of asthma is narrowing of the airways, especially in the small airways where this is related to allergic conditions, because there is a narrowing of the wheezing sound usually in the breath either when inhaling or sighing which can be heard directly or through physical examination by a doctor with using a stethoscope.
The examination is followed by an examination wherein this is the gold standard to see the degree of asthma called spirometry examination. This should be done so that treatment can be done optimally.
