Hi guys. I just wondered if you could give me some advice/opinions... I don't have asthma myself, but my partner does and I'm wondering about the best way to talk to him about it. At the moment he's working abroad, but he was home last week and I noticed that he was using his reliever at least once a day. From what I've read that's not good, and it's certainly more often than I'd normally expect him to use it. He doesn't have a preventer or anything else, although he used to, and hasn't had an attack in years. I mentioned it to him, and although I'm fairly sure that if he was at home he'd go to the doctors, with him being away (he won't be back until July now) he's reluctant to do anything unless it's an emergency. I just wondered if you think he should seek medical advice, and if so how should I go about encouraging him? I know it's a sensitive subject, and I don't want to be seen as interfering, but it's his health!
