Good morning doctor,

1 Answer:

Hello Zakiyatul, thank you for your question


Asthma is indeed classified as a long-term disease caused by hypersensitivity of the respiratory tract to certain subjects / substances. The main symptoms of asthma are:

cough
out of breath
wheezing or a 'giggling' sound while breathing

Although the exact cause of asthma is not clear, asthma attacks are often triggered by:

physical activity
cold air, including direct air conditioning exposure to the body
cigarette smoke
dust mites
animal hair
viral infection

If your doctor has diagnosed that you have asthma with a high recurrence rate, then you need to re-understand the principles of asthma treatment:

Reliever or reliever - either in the form of an inhaled medicine or a drinking tablet, the goal is to relieve / relieve asthma symptoms when an asthma attack takes place
Prevent or controller - generally in the form of an inhaled drug, which is useful for preventing recurrence / asthma attacks, used even if an asthma attack does not occur

It is not appropriate to use salbutamol as a preventive against asthma attacks (consumed every day), considering that this drug is a reliver drug class. So that asthma attacks do not appear frequently, you should consult directly with a pulmonary specialist. The doctor will determine the severity of your asthma, which in turn will affect treatment options, including the use of controller drugs.


Until recently, the most effective therapy for asthma was avoiding its triggers. Each individual can have a different asthma trigger. If your asthma occurs frequently after exposure to AC, then you should:

avoid direct exposure to air conditioning
wear a jacket or layered clothing in a room that is too cold
consumption of warm ginger

Hopefully this is useful
