Asthma

Symptoms of asthma include wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath, and chest tightness. These symptoms may get worse with exposure to allergens such as pollen, pets, dust and molds. Upper respiratory infections including the flu may also make a person’s symptoms worse.

The diagnosis of asthma is based upon clinical history, physical examination and diagnostic testing such as spirometry (pulmonary function testing) and allergy skin testing.

Contact Dr. Ellen Epstein to determine the best course of treatment for your asthma. This may include medications for allergic triggered asthma, rescue medications, long term medications, possibly Xolair, a new injectable medication for moderate to severe asthma) and immunotherapy.
