When attacks are often repeat, time after time the person’s general health declines, possibly with permanent damage to lung tissues.
For immediate treatments, first try giving the person a hot drink of milk, or pain hot water. This may relax the tissues in the air passages.  A steam inhalation accompanied by a hot foot bath may bring relief. If no mechanical vaporizer is available, treatment may be given by conducting steam form a pan of boiling water through a paper cone to the area of the person’s face or the sensitive membranes of the organs of breathing an to ensure a supply of fresh air.   If theses remedies do not relieve the attack then it’s time to go the doctor.
If use an inhaler to combat your asthma attacks, be sure you use it correctly, follow both your doctor’s and manufacturer’s instructions. Don’t overuse or underuse the medication. And pay attention to the expiration date on the inhaler.

You can be tested if what allergens triggers your attack. Remember, that aspirin is a trigger for some sufferers.
