Effective Asthma Treatment in Humble

A goal of any good treatment plan is to prevent asthma attacks before they begin. The first step is understanding what triggers your symptoms, avoiding these triggers, and taking medication to manage your symptoms.

Many of the medications available tend to belong to one of two categories – long-term control medications and quick-relief medications. Taking long-term control medications as prescribed can substantially reduce your symptoms and keep asthma attacks from happening. However, if an asthma attack does occur, quick-relief medications can be taken to treat them. 

Understanding Your Asthma

When left untreated, the symptoms of asthma can have a significant impact on your life. Triggers, such as animal fur, dust, and even changes in the weather can cause your symptoms to worsen. Your inflamed and narrow airways will become so sensitive to irritants that you may experience trouble sleeping and may also have to miss time from work or school. If your symptoms get too severe, you may even require emergency medical attention. That is why creating a treatment plan is so crucial.

Triggers are not the same for everyone, so take the time to identify yours. Common asthma triggers include exercise, smoke, pollen, strong fragrances, viral infections, and more.

Why Do Some People Develop Asthma?

Asthma Treatment FAQs

Can I improve my asthma with exercise?

Although exercise is a common trigger for people with asthma, it does not mean you should avoid it. Regular exercise can potentially strengthen lung capacity. However, try to avoid exercising in cold weather and be sure to always carry an inhaler with you in case an attack occurs.

Does asthma ever go away?

Many asthma sufferers will experience both good days and bad days. With treatment, it might even seem like your asthma is gone. However, asthma is a lifelong condition, so it goes away.

Are inhalers safe to use?

Inhalers are key when it comes to treating asthma and, unlike oral medication, they do not reach other parts of a patient’s body. Therefore, they have very minimal side effects and are safe to use as prescribed.

Can food allergies trigger asthma?

Food allergies, much like any other allergies, can trigger asthma symptoms or an attack.
