Asthma Attack No Inhaler

Is Your Asthma Attack An Emergency? | Health Plus

Despite this, many people develop asthma for no obvious reason, even if they don’t have any of the risk factors.

Asthma triggers

Although there is no single cause of asthma, the most common triggers are:

Allergies. Most asthma sufferers are allergic to something. Some typical allergens include pollen, pet dander, mould and dust mites. If you are aware of what you are allergic to, you should try to avoid it. Exercise. Although exercise is necessary for maintaining optimal health, strenuous exercise can sometimes trigger an asthma attack. Exercise-induced asthmatics should avoid strenuous aerobic workouts in favour of low intensity exercise that doesn’t lead to an attack. Using ventolin or salbutamol puffs before physical exercise can prevent asthma attack. Acid reflux. If you have acid reflux and stomach acid reaches your throat or airways, it can lead to inflammation, irritation and asthma. Sinusitis.

How can you stop an asthma attack without an inhaler?

I've had asthma for a while now but no matter what i do when i get an asthma attack it takes forever to stop it if i dont have my inhaler. Any techniques to help stop one or atleast calm it down?

Many of the answers below could actually WORSEN your asthma, such as a humidifier, if your asthma is triggered by HUMIDITY, which many people have! Don't try these until you find out what your "triggers" are!

For the time being,

i believe strong coffee will help

My son has Asthma and his inhaler does not help. We had to invest in an air pump and put him on Xopenex mist to clam his attacks. You might want to talk to your doctor about getting one, your insurance should cover it.

If you have severe asthma, you don't want to put off treatment. Get to an ER or urgent care center. If it's mild, take a steam shower, fix some coffee and take a spoonful of honey.
