Asthma: Please consult the doctor again.
He will reexamine you, and perhaps do further tests(Xrays,sputa,COVID).
After this he will decide on appropriate treatment.

Flu like symptoms: You may need to take Tamiflu and please consider a virtual consultation with HT.
Monitor your temperature, drink fluids and rest. Follow the advice of your asthma specialist, take your short acting inhaler e.g. Albuterol as directed. An inhaled form of steroids may also be helpful. A chest radiograph may be ordered by your PCP as indicated, and then uploaded to HT for an inbox consult review.
