Symptoms: Wheezing,I have a cold I believe

 

 

Doctor: Hello,Nebulizer can be safely used even 3 to 4 times a day and if relief is not obtained then one must consider repor ting to ER , as sometimes if nebulization is taken late , then bronchial asthma attack can aggravate when intravenous bronchodilators are required, else mouth puffs are the best way to control asthma.I hope i have answered your query,wishing you good health,regards
