Hi doctor,

My son, who is 15 years old, suffers from seasonal allergy during spring and autumn months. He has to take Levolin inhaler several times a day and Budecort inhaler as well during the period. Sometimes, he also has to take Montair tablets. I heard about inhaler Cromotop 2 mg, which prevents allergy and asthma. I want to know if it can be given to him. What are the side effects of the Budecort? Is it safe to use for the long term? Please advise the dosage and duration.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • Your son is suffering from seasonal allergies, and he needs to take inhaler.
  • You can take Budecort without worry for a short term. One thing you always remember that after taking each puff make sure your son rinse his mouth properly to avoid fungal infection.
  • Before you start Cromotop inhaler (Cromoglicic acid), you get an allergy test for your son and based on that further action could be taken.

Thank you doctor,

I want some more details. I specifically want to know in depth about the side effects of Cromotop inhaler. Why are you asking for the allergy test? Is effectiveness of Cromotop inhaler depend on the result of that? Can you please explain in detail?

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • The side effects Cromotop inhaler are nausea, dizziness, unpleasant taste, joint pain and swelling, skin rash, aggravation of asthma, throat irritation, sneezing, epistaxis (nasal bleeding), wheezing, etc. This includes both short and long term use.
  • An allergy test is another mode of approach to achieve more benefit. Cromotop inhaler use is not linked with the allergy test.
  • Sometimes, seasonal allergy linked with pollination of the flower. I think you may have a flower pot in your home and any of the flowers pollination may be around that time, and if you remove those flowers, your son may get better control.
  • At home, use vacuum cleaner rather than sweeping. Change bed cover frequently and wash it in warm water.
