Hi, I am 14 and I used to have asthma.

I made it better by:

Eating lots of apple because the vitamins make your lungs healthier and stronger.

Also, try to cut him down from using his inhaler all of the time - just tell him to sit down for a bit and to breathe through his nose and if he still wheezes then he should take his inhaler.



Please do not give medical advice. You are not qualfied to do so, and it is not safe. Advising someone not to use their inhaler when they need it is potentially dangerous. Undertreating asthma can be fatal.

Anyone who is prescribed an inhaler should use it as discussed with their doctor. If you are concerned that you are using your inhaler too much or inappropriately, you should discuss appropriate use with your doctor or asthma nurse before trying to cut down your usage.
