Treatment of occupational asthma

Asthma is a treatable disease but, unfortunately, it cannot be cured. Asthmatic patients are required to take controller medications (slow acting drugs) regularly. Reliever medications (fast acting drugs) are needed for immediate relief of asthmatic symptoms. They are short acting and their function is to dilate the constricted air passages. These asthmatic medications are given by inhaler devices called nebuliser or inhaler. In resistant cases, where asthma remains uncontrolled, oral steroids may be prescribed for better control. A recent advancement in treatment, called immunotherapy, may also be considered where asthma is not controlled with medications. However, the best treatment in occupational asthma is to switch jobs and where there will be no exposure to the offending allergen.
