How to treat asthma?

Complete healing of asthma is rare. But with good treatment you can get the disease under control. The medicines that are used will also differ from patient to patient. Patients with a mild form only need medication when exposed to risk factors or when they feel an attack coming on. Patients with a heavier form should keep asthma under control in the long term. Asthma medications include:
  1. Corticosteroids anti-inflammatory drugs (inhalers)
