Carry your salbutamol inhaler with you all the time.
If you have dust allergies please try to avoid exposure dust.
If you feel sick before travel, and have cold or runny nose, check with your doctor to make sure you are stable enough to travel, as allergies, upper airway infection etc can trigger your asthma.
Sometimes your doctor may give you prednisone ( steroid). Steroids are not recommended on a routine basis as they can have serious side effects.
This is for information only and not medical advise, please consult your local doctor, or consider speaking with DesiMD doctor who will be available as needed for either information about asthma doctors in your area or connect you to a doctor on our panel.
