What are the Treatment Options for Allergic Asthma?

Treatment for allergic asthma typically involves a combination of medications and allergen avoidance strategies. Medications may include:

  • Inhaled corticosteroids to reduce airway inflammation.
  • Long-acting beta-agonists relax the muscles around the airways.
  • Leukotriene modifiers reduce inflammation and mucus production.
  • Allergy medications such as antihistamines or nasal corticosteroids are used to manage allergic triggers.

Allergen avoidance strategies may include:

  • Using allergen-proof bedding and air filters
  • Regularly cleaning indoor environments to reduce dust and mold
  • Minimizing exposure to known allergens (e.g., keeping pets out of bedrooms)
