Asthma is a condition that makes breathing difficult by narrowing the airways. Extra mucus is produced, triggering a persistent cough, and a whistling sound called “wheezing” is heard when an asthmatic patient breathes. For some people, it is a mild nuisance, whereas, for others, it can become a life-threatening problem if proper medical treatment isn’t administered at the right time.
If you feel that your asthma isn’t letting you breathe properly or that none of your inhalers are giving you relief, get in touch with a doctor straight away. Certified doctors at Medvisit telemedicine service are at your disposal 24/7. Asthma should never be taken lightly, and you can call our doctor who will guide you on whether you should increase the dosage of inhalers you are taking or to nebulize yourself.
