In brief: Asthma medications

Medications to treat symptoms include short-acting beta agonists/rescue inhalers like Proair HFA or xopenex (levalbuterol) hfa, and maintenance medications to prevent or reduce further attacks include steroid/long-acting beta agonist inhalers like Advair Diskus and leukotriene modifiers like singular. Your doctor will treat it based on how frequently you are experiencing symptoms.
Allergy shots may be helpful.

In brief: Intal (cromolyn)

Intal (cromolyn inhaler) can also help to stabilize your mast cells and that can help stabilize your bronchioles reaction o the allergen.

In brief: Yes, there is...

Allergic asthma is the most common form of asthma.
It is inflammation and narrowing of airways triggered by inhaled allergens such as dust mites, animal dander, pollen or mold. The first step in managing allergic asthma is to identify the triggers and avoid them. You may need allergy testing to find out what is triggering your symptoms. There are medications to treat symptoms and prevent symptoms.

In brief: Definitely

Allergies are the most common cause of asthma.
An allergist helps evaluate this by taking a history, examining you , doing a breathing test and then probably doing skin testing. There are very good treatments which will then be discussed with you.
