Get seen: An asthma exacerbation is unpredictable and may not improve after resolution of a triggering infection. Your respiratory status needs to be evaluated, exacerbation needs to be treated and your plan for lasting control needs to be addressed. If you cannot see your primary doctor, then go to urgent care or ER. It is also time to start seeing Pulmonologist or Allergist. Best wishes!
