I'm new on this forum and new with asthma too. My asthma has been diagnosed last last year. I'm completely blank on how to manage it. I cough all the time and wheeze all the time. Salbutamol inhaler does not help me, it helps only for 20 minutes. So in order to relax my airways, i take fostair inhaler with active ingredients Beclometasone and formoterol. Fostair has Corticosteroids, so it helps. I take fostair when i feel extremly congested. I wake up every morning wheezing. My cough is dry, i barely cough phlegm. My phlegm looks thread or string like. I try very hard to cough phlegm, i feel i have it inside but i can't take it out. I have done antibiotic course thrice with prednisolone, which helps 3 to 4 weeks and symptoms are back again.
Please tell me how do i find out my asthma triggers, only thing i have found is that i get asthma attack when i exercise or swim. But thats not enough, i have other triggers which i can't find out. Please help me how to control it, foods to avoid, any precautions, anything that can help!
I'm 23 years old female, i live in a humid climate, i cough indoors as well as outdoors, my house is not carpeted, i don't consume cold drinks or cold water, my maid cleans the house daily i.e dusting , mopping is done on daily basis. I don't smoke nor does anyone in my house.
Moreover when i sleep i feel my breathing from nose is getting blocked. I don't experience any headache or pressure on face. Sometimes I feel my noes is just blocked , no runny noes nothing, just blocked
