Still have asthma: If you have asthma and had an attack 2 weeks earlier, you still have the4 disease. Prolonged bronchitis, in many cases, is actually asthma. So, if you still have problems, you need to be on an inhaled steroid and broncho-dilator. Anyway, if you have never seen an asthma specialist AND are taking appropriate medication, you should see one. Taking an inhaler here and there won't cut it.
