Albuterol/testing: Inflammation in the lungs may persist following an infection. Please discuss the use of inhaled and oral steroids, in combination with Albuterol with your physician. Pulmonary function testing with and without Albuterol is advised. Imaging may be ordered by your physician. A virtual consultation may be helpful to you and your physician.
