In brief: Immune suppression
Css can be treated by medications that suppress the immune system. Prednisone is most helpful initially.
Based on what organ is affected, another agent may be used while Prednisone is tapered. Meanwhile, asthma and nasal/sinus issues can be treated for symptom relief. A rheumatologist diagnoses and treats autoimmune diseases like this and may work with ENT and pulmonary doctors.

In brief: Steroids and more
Cyclophosphamide is the most well proven agent for churg-strauss syndrome, in combination with prednisone.
The combo usually used to induce a remission, followed by long term therapy to prevent a recurrence. Many drugs have been used to maintain of remission, too many to list here. But they all have in common some degree of immune suppression, and often used with drugs to prevent infection.
