Asthma treatment should not be based on the use of medicines only. You should also apply careful avoidance techniques so that your daughter is not exposed to the major allergens in her environment. Animals must never be allowed into her room. Dust reducing programmes should be in place especially the use of speciall pillow and mattress covers which are obtainable from most linen suppliers. It is best not to have carpets in her room, just a small washable mat next to her bed on a tiled or wooden floor.
On the medication side she would do well on a preventer medicine called Singulair, but this will be too expensive. Budeflam is a very good preventer medicine but must be given twice a day using a spacer with a face mask.
