Please explain which drug would be used to treat bronchial asthma?

Depends: If attacks are infrequent and , mild, a rescue inhaler and avoidance of triggers would suffice. If they are frequent , and severe, a "controller" inhaler or oral drugs will be needed in addition to the rescue inhaler. Rescue inhalers open your bronchioles and allow you to breathe easier.
