I wanted to say thanks for the advice on my last post ""exams and asthma"" We wrote a letter into school and i have been told what i can do if i have an attack in an exam. I also got through the exam without an attack until later in the day.
I've had a lot of attacks recently and i don't understand why. I've had them more and more frequently; i had one yesterday after someone sprayed aerosol in my face during a lesson, the person was told off but it's getting annoying 'cos it doesn't have to be someone spraying it around me anymore, but just someone wearing strong stuff can set me off. I've been out of quite a few lessons 'cos of attacks this term and there's always someone who thinks they can come up with some 'clever' comment about asthma attacks and how they'd like to have it to get out of lessons, when it's really not like that. I'm already on symbicort, montelukast and salbutamol but was wondering if there are any other (safe) ways of trying to cut down the number of attacks i'm having. I know avoiding my triggers is something i could do, but it's difficult to avoid a fair amount of them at school due to kids wearing too much spray and building work going on etc..
Anyway, any ideas would be useful
