How is cough-variant asthma treated?

ANSWER

Cough-variant asthma is treated in the same way that typical asthma is treated. You may be given 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.
