What do you do with normally well controlled patients who present with an exacerbation following a viral infection? I was under the impression that there was data which showed that by the time a step up of preventer becomes effective, most patients will have got better anyway, so the thing to do is advise increase use of reliever and wait until its gone better. However my colleague would always step up straight away and step down later. What do others do?
