When you are really tiered/have asthma and you see like white dots that comes and goes? What is that coming from? Why is that happening?
Very broad question: There is little to do for an acute attack without administering medications. The best approach is to get the child to calm down (good luck!) and try exhaling through pursed lips like blowing up a balloon. This creates enough air pressure in the lungs to keep the airways open. The parents should have albuterol or an epi-pen; if they're not around, call 911. ...Read more

I have asthma and my job wants to test to see if im smoking but all I do is chewing tabacco will it show up soley as chewing tabacco or just positive?

Should I see doctor, mild asthma stymptons for 2 weeks, using saba 2-4 times /day, symptoms only mild so worried I'm wasting docs time?
Yes: Use of your saba inhaler 2-4x a day for 2 weeks strongly suggests poorly controlled asthma. The key to asthma control is reducing airway inflammation.
