Has anyone prevented the asthma cough?

Recently three months back I have got asthma and actually, I have got diagnosed late I guess. Because I was having all these wheezing and chest pain for quite a long time. Almost 2 years. For me, during cold, I often get a strain of blood with a cough and it persists for one or two days and then everything gets fine. Now as I have been diagnosed with asthma, still I want to know if there is anyone who faces the same problem? And how can I prevent them?

  1. Hi meku and thanks for your post. While I'm hopeful others in the community will see your post and respond with their own anecdotal experiences, I thought I would chime in at this point in time. If you're speaking of 'preventing' asthma attacks, anything that you are able to do to avoid your own personal triggers will help. Staying compliant with prescribed medication is also a way to manage your condition. I thought this article on medications associated with asthma treatment might provide you with some additional insight for your concern: I do hope you find it to be helpful.

    1. For me, the best thing to try and prevent the asthma cough is to take my inhalers as prescribed. Depending on triggers or other viral infections then I don't always succeed, but it is the most surefire way to ensure my lungs are ready to withstand what comes their way.

      1. Hi krishwaecosse and thanks for your post. It's always a good thing to remain compliant with your medication schedule. It sounds like that works quite well for you, too! Thanks for your input. All the best, Leon (site moderator)
