Just wanted a few peoples opinions on this really after having a discussion with a friend.
How does everyones asthma cough present and how does it differ from a normal cough?
Aside from when I have a chest infection, when I have an asthma related cough, it is generally a dry cough which tickles inside my chest and as a reflex I cough and I cant suppress the cough. The only way to stop the constant cough is to have some ventolin.
My ' friend ' who is a mild asthmatic seems to think this isn't an asthma cough and that I'm just trying to make out my asthma is worse than hers! Why I would do this I have no idea? I'd love to control my asthma with ventolin alone! ( Plus I'm sure the gp wouldn't prescribe me inhalers/tablets/pred or give me nebs at the surgery, nor would my peak flow drop by 50% if it wasnt asthma.)
Anyway, so I thought I'd ask your opinion?
