I am new to this forum and I am seeking advice. I have asthma all of my life (I am 25 years old) and was hospitalised frequently with it as a child. I almost lost my life numerous times. Thankfully, my asthma subsided a little and was very manageable until this Christmas. I have had 5 attacks since then and have had my medication changed to help the symptoms subside. (I was changed from ventolin and clenil to salbutomol and flutiform).
Unfortunately, the medication does not seem to make a difference and as soon as I stop taking antibiotics or steroids (which the hospital have given me after each attack) I seem to get worse again.
I also get frequent colds which don't help the situation but I think this is due to me being a primary school teacher so there is always something going around the school to catch.
Just wondering if anyone else has had a bout of asthma like this, and if so, what helped them?
