How does an asthma inhaler work?
Asthma inhalers can be taken daily or in the case of an immediate asthma attack. They work by relaxing the airways that have become inflamed to allow more air to pass through. This helps to regulate breathing and reduce wheezing, coughing, tightness of the chest and shortness of breath.
Can asthma be prevented permanently?
There is no cure for asthma however, there are many medications that can be used to ensure it does not heavily impact your life. The two kinds of inhalers that are used are called reliever and preventer inhalers. These work daily and in the case of an attack. There are also tablets that can be used to treat asthma.
