Inhaler more: Try to learn how to use the inhaler as often as directed. It takes a few days to pick up this skill. Follow the prescriber instructions. If not better can always call doctor and inform them they need to see you or prescribe something else.

See doctor: You need to consult your doctor to find out the cause for your problems. If this is something that happens for the first time in the past few days, it may be a viral infection (including a cold). But if this has been happening for weeks, see your doctor and get treated. If you contracted a cold about 10 days ago and now having these symptoms, one needs to consider a bacterial sinusitis.
