Asthma to Allergic Asthma

I have had wheezing for a very long time. A wrongly prescribed drug that contained beta blockers made my wheezing turn into asthma episodes at the age of 19. At the age of 24, I moved to Australia from India, and those days involved manageable asthma attacks which would gradually go away with prednisolone tablets.

I seriously have no clue as to why for the past 6 months I am experiencing severe allergic asthma attacks. The attacks involve intolerable itching of the chin and random parts of the body, coupled with asthma. I have a normal diet now, as I figured sugar is the main trigger, and I also exercise regularly. However, I feel like exercise can trigger an allergic asthma attack too. Living with asthma is something that we have all gotten used to, but allergies are not tolerable at all. No drugs are helping out that prevent such episodes.

Please do let me know if any of you are going through the same.
