Sudden adult flare of asthma. peak flow within 20% of best but itchy chin, shortness of breath and tightness of chest. dr says lungs sound okay?

Albuterol, flovent: With 80 % max flow you're ok if you keep up with maintenance albuterol and inhaled steroid of choice. Just to be proactive, go see your GP and get some oral steroids to avoid a drop in peak flow

Asthma : I would take a course of oral steroids for 5 days, use inhaled bronchodilator and inhaled steroids as before
