Asthmatic Bronchitis Treatment
Asthmatic bronchitis can be treated through medications and lifestyle changes.
Some of these treatments include:
These drugs open up or relax the bronchioles, the muscles of the airways, helping an individual to breathe.
- Steroids such as beclomethasone, budesonide and fluticasone
Corticosteroids are used to treat asthmatic bronchitis to reduce swelling in the airways. These steroids can provide immediate relief of acute symptoms.
Excess mucus production can make it difficult to breathe when you have bronchitis. Your doctor may prescribe guaifenesin to thin or loosen excess mucus secretions.
Excess mucus is a complication of asthmatic bronchitis and can increase breathing difficulties.
It is important to keep mucous secretions thin by staying hydrated.
Drinking water can help to relieve many bronchitis symptoms. Using a cool mist humidifier can also make it easier to clear mucus, as well as thin secretions in the lungs.
