Hello, after having a persistent cough for around 6 weeks with no obvious chest infection my doctor has diagnosed me with asthma. The only test he did was what i think is a peak flow?
He has packed me off with a brown and a blue inhaler which is fine, as the weeks go on i find i only really need to use my blue inhaler at work if i get stressed or if there are triggers (smoke and perfume?). Is this weird to suddenly have asthma, shouldn't my doctor be doing something to monitor it? I also feel like my steroid inhaler isn't lasting me through the day, its almost as if it starts to wear off in the afternoons and i end up having to use my blue inhaler?
Also, i hate to sound weird but i seem to hav developed itchy skin on my face since i have been taking my inhaler, you can't see and its not constant but it really itches!
Does any of this sound ok?? I'm 31 and asthma runs in my mums side of the family but i'm still finding this a little weird?
