Hi guys, I am brand new to asthma topic, as I was diagnosed with mild asthma on Friday. I have been experiencing breathing difficultis since the last few weeks (chest tightness, shortness of breath, ...). I was tested allergic to basically everything that grows during summer months.
However, I am trying to fiure out why I have asthma now, at the age of 33. Yes, I've had hay fever for years, but still... And I noticed one thing: the first time I experienced breathing troubles was on June 5 this year. And approx. 36 hours prior to it I used a self-tanner for the first time. This self-tanner is (should be) organic and vegan and made of green thungs only, and there are some ingredients (e.g. wheat) I'm supposed to be allergic to. Do you think it is possible to react to a cream with developing an asthma? I had no skin irritatiins whatsoever... But it stroke me when the troubles wordened today, after applaying the cream yesterday. I am gonna do a test with not using the cream for the next couple of days to see, but do you think it is possible? Haven't found any cases...the time synchronisation is striking, though...
And my second questiin is - is it common for an inhalator not to have any effect? I am inhaling twice a day and don't see any improvement... Going to see the doctor on Friday again to have it checked, of course, but it makes me crazy as I tend to panick after almost each short breath... 🤔
Thanks in advance for your assistance and ideas!
