I've had enough chest infections to know the starting signs of a chest infection, peak flow starts to drop, funny taste when I cough, persistent but not yet chesty cough.... There's no point seeing the GP yet as I know if be told my chest is clear, peak flow is fine (I have a high PB) , but i wondered if there's anything I could be doing now to minimise the impact or even head it off?
In the past when I was taking seretide, I had an asthma action plan that would have kicked in through the drop in peak flow but the plan was never updated and now I take sirdupla which I know isn't licensed at any more than 2 puffs twice a day.
I have started taking 2 puffs of ventolin every 4 hours in the hope it will not only help peak flow, but open my airways to try and cough up the bugs.
Any other suggestions?
