How is cough-variant asthma treated?

ANSWER

The treatment for cough-variant asthma is the same you'd get for other types of asthma. You may need an asthma inhaler with albuterol, ipratropium, and/or inhaled steroids (anti-inflammatory agents). You should see a gradual improvement in asthma symptoms over six to eight weeks.
