Should I recommend she wear a mask? She doesnt want to stop doing this work and her asthma is generally much better since starting Clenil & Serevent inhalers earlier this year. However she's quite allergic to a number of things, including flour which she uses when in the bakery section at work (not all the time). She says she just turns her head away when using the loose flour to avoid triggering the cough. This patient doesn't speak English really well, so communicating with her isn't straight-forward. Any advice? I have read the Occupational Asthma sections on the website.
