Asthma

Asthma

Asthma is a long-term condition of the airways that introduces difficulties breathing air in and out of the lungs. The condition causes the muscles surrounding the walls of the airways to tighten, resulting in the airways becoming narrower. Sometimes, phlegm or sticky mucus can build up, further narrowing the airways.

Our range of asthma treatments offer effective results.

to explain Asthma and the treatments available

UK Meds asked our favorite doctor, Dr. Christian Jessen, to explain Asthma Inhalers. Below is what he has to say.

Asthma is a long term health condition where those affected have overly-sensitive airways, and it can lead to serious difficulties when breathing. Inflammation and constriction of the airways cause them to get narrower, making it harder for air to pass through. This causes a typical asthma attack which left untreated can be potentially fatal.

Symptoms include coughing, wheezing, tightness around the chest and shortness of breath. Currently, there is no cure for asthma, but there are a wide range of treatments that can help. Reliever inhalers, which are usually blue, provide rapid relief by relaxing your airways. They should always be kept on you at all times in case of asthma attack and you should always have a spare inhaler on hand.

Preventer inhalers, which are usually colored brown, contain a low dose of steroids. They take affect over time to reduce the inflammation, sensitivity and swelling in your airways. Even if your symptoms don't seem serious, you should always use your preventer inhaler (if you have been advised to) to help keep an attack at bay.

UK Meds can prescribe many different types of inhalers, including Ventolin, Clenil Modulite, Bricanyl and more. Start your free consultation with GMC registered doctors today.
