Hello doctor,

My son, aged 15 years, is suffering from allergy since his childhood.

He will have cough and vomiting whenever it is attacked, mostly in the winter.

We use Asthalin, Sereflo, and sometimes with nebulization, he will be fine for some days.

Please advise a permanent cure for his problem.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

From the medication you have detailed, he is being treated for asthma.

Any positive family history?

Does he have chest tightness or shortness of breath or wheezing during the episode?

Any seasonal variation or exacerbation in winters?

Asthma is due to hyper airway responsiveness to air borne allergens.

Treatment includes:

prevention of the episodes and management of acute asthma. Identifying and avoiding the allergen remains the mainstay.

Inhaled corticosteroids control the hyper airway responsiveness and control the occurrence of episodes.

Asthalin and nebulization remain the treatment for acute episodes. As I have told you, for any allergic diseases, avoidance of the merger is what should be done and followed. You may go to an allergic specialist to help you in identifying the allergens.
