If the person doesn't have an asthma plan: Sit the person upright comfortably and loosen tight clothing. If the person has asthma medication, such as an inhaler, assist in using it. If the person doesn't have an inhaler, use one from a first aid kit or borrow someone else's. Homeopathic treatment for asthma is not only successful in treating Asthma, but is also safe and free from side-effects. Homeopathy offers a holistic cure as it goes to the root of the problem and treats the source. Recurrence of asthmatic attacks is a major discomfort for patients. Homeopathic medicines thus are literally a breath of fresh air for asthmatic patients, resulting in permanent cure. The Homeopathic medicines are prescribed after taking note of symptoms and the mental and physical profile of each patient. The Homeopathic treatment can completely root out Asthma, though it may take time before desirable results are achieved.

relax. Avpoid trigers like smoke, pollution, allergens can take antiallergic tab with oral bronchodialators.

Home remedy is steam inhalation. From your regular doctor you can get a prior prescription of tablets like Etophylline, Salbutamol or Terbutaline - the one which suits you for taking in such situations. and when inhaler etc is not available
