Symptomatic Treatment of Asthma Symptoms

Table of Contents

Asthma is the most severe allergic disease. It is often chronic and affects both children and adults, severely impairing their quality of life. Asthma is a disease that often increases in severity and, if left untreated, can lead to hospitalization, a loss of working capacity or high drug consumption – all in all, a severe reduction in the quality of life.

Asthma treatment is based upon a daily measurement of symptoms and lung function. Treatment is performed in close cooperation between the doctor and you. Symptomatic treatment of asthma includes continuous use of medicine. Beta-2-agonists are used to treat acute asthma attacks. Long-acting beta-2-agonists have an effect that can last over night. Use of inhalant steroid treatment for asthma has increased, especially in European countries. Inhalant steroids limit the inflammation in the lungs (bronchi) and thus the symptoms.

If you do not feel that your allergy is sufficiently helped by the introduction of various avoidance measures, and your need for anti-allergic drugs is significant, you should consider consulting a specialist about the possibility of vaccination treatment.
