imformation please

hi every one, does anyone have any information re aspergilla's, not sure about the spelling and what medication they take, I have to take steroid's about every 6weeks and some times antibiotics, I only have to have a day in the garden to start a attack. the hospital seem to dismiss it and just treat the asthma. On the up side do fined that ironing on the steam setting helps, look forward to your replies.

Good morning jpw,

I looked it up for I do not know of it either.  It says an in implement for sprinkling Holy Water, but can't be that can it.

Someone on here will be sure to know.

oh dear I have spelt it wrong I tested positive to it, it comes from damp, things in the garden ie compost heaps and air condition mostly in planes it only affects a few people, just had the people in to do some damp in the dinning room so I am hoping that helps,. as because of the work I am really bad at the moment. I will go and find the report and get the right spelling.thankyou

Hi jpw1, if you type aspergillus into the search box on the top right of this page there are some answers.

I am like you, steroids and ABs at regular intervals, and I am wheezing again today and coughing yucky stuff. ...not a happy bunny , especially as I hurt my back weeding the garden and that was only for an hour or two.
