Allergy Myth #2: I Outgrew My Asthma
July 22, 2013
Sorry to burst your bubble, but asthma is a lifelong condition. It may go through quiet periods, but you still have it – even as an adult. Though there is no cure for asthma, it is treatable. Asthma is a complex disease with varying levels of severity. A good treatment plan starts with a good diagnosis. Patients tend to be poor perceivers of their own severity, not realizing how poorly they are actually able to breathe. Make sure your physician is sure you have asthma and gives you a plan specific to your condition and expect it to include inhaled corticosteroid along with combinations of other inhaled medications, plus treatments for any underlying conditions such as allergies.
