I suffered from a severe attack of bronchial asthma when I was a small child and have not experienced an asthmatic attack for years but I experienced a peculiar attack a couple of years back. I am now twenty years old and find that I have been experiencing an asthmatic cough for a couple of days. I am not very ill and feel quite ok except for the cough which is not a usual cough with a cold. I feel like this is a cough I used to experience while I was suffering from asthma. What I want to know is whether this will just go away or whether it is a sign that my asthma is going to come back with full force? If I am going to experience an asthmatic attack, I am really going to be in difficulty as I have not had any asthma medicines since years and do not have any thing in hand. I just cannot understand what has triggered my asthma to come back if it is coming back. Initially, I had decided to not really bother about the cough, but now it is becoming too severe to ignore any more. I would be grateful if someone could shed some light on this matter and tell me what to do about it as soon as possible.
Is it a dry, non-productive cough (non-productive cough does not expel any mucus)? If it is, then it might be a cough-variant asthma. Cough-variant asthma is sometimes called chronic cough to describe a cough that has lasted longer than six to eight weeks. It is common in kids with "childhood asthma", just like what you've said. You should recall if you were exposed to allergens, or breathing in cold air because coughing may start from those. I suggest that you set an appointment with an Allergist or Pulmonologist (asthma specialists).
