For those who use daily inhaled steroids (controller medication) make sure to rinse out your mouth with water or brush your teeth after each use. You do not have to rinse out your mouth following rescue inhaler use. This will help prevent a white coating/thrush from developing.

Hi needadvise,

Are you working with a doctor or an asthma specialist to make sure that your symptoms are under control? He/She would be best able to answer questions concerning your specific asthma plan and treatment options, but if you have any general questions about asthma we would be happy to help Our Asthma Health Center is filled with information on controlling your asthma, possible asthma triggers and more. Please let us know how you are doing!

Best wishes,
Atti
