I was diagnosed as having severe asthma last year having struggled for years especially in the summer. I take Seretide and Qvar, Montelukast and often have at least two to four courses of steroids in the summer due to attacks related pollen, heat etc (I also take an antihistamine and a nasal spray). I've been reading recently about anitfungal tablets being used for asthma treatment but there only seems to be one place in the UK that advocates this, David Denning who seems to work at Wythenshawe. My IgE is usually between 200 and 600 and I've been told I don't qualify for Xolair as my FEV1 isn't low enough. Has anyone tried antifungals?
