How To Treat Asthma And The Effects Of Consuming Ventolin Inhalers?
Hello, I want to ask. My husband has asthma, may be a descendant of his grandfather, but he often recurs, if the morning is always a cold and cough with phlegm. Sometimes in 1 week there are just recurring. I always have ventolin inhalers and salbutamol available. But because of the frequency of using the inhaler its effect on the throat becomes hot and like burning, swallowing even food hurts. Finally, the stop inhaler and sometimes salbutamol consumption only if recurrent. But the longer it is because of the frequent consumption of salbutamol it also makes the throat heat like burning. Whereas my husband is very happy if it’s late. So I feel bad, my body is very thin, even though I eat a lot. How is the solution. What medicines are safe for asthma and can my husband recover completely?
Hello, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com
The best solution for your husband's asthma recurrence is to consult a doctor, if necessary, you can immediately consult a pulmonary specialist. Doctors need to make a direct assessment of several things such as the frequency of recurrence, the form of asthma attacks that occur, the frequency of attacks at night and several other things because the right asthma treatment depends also on these things. And keep in mind that asthma can not be completely cured, it can only be controlled so that no recurrence occurs.
The doctor will further decide whether the use of ventolin inhalers or the drug salbutamol, which in this case contains salbutamol only in a different form, needs to be continued or not, and whether additional drugs are needed to control your husband's asthma symptoms.
For temporary treatment if your husband has an asthma attack, it is recommended to use the drug salbutamol 4 spray inhalers every 4 minutes for a maximum of 2x administration, if it does not improve immediately bring your husband to the nearest hospital emergency room for further treatment.
I hope this helps.
