Sudden Severe AsthmaHello, I was wondering and hoping if anyone had any suggestions as to what I can do.
In the past week, I have started having multiple asthma attacks every day. Made worse by the cold air. Usually flares badly between the hours of 3-9 AM.
I have not had to use my inhaler for almost 10 years. I just finished a holiday show with vigorous dancing and did not have any difficulty breathing whatsoever. But now, I am finding myself having to use my inhaler upwards of 7 times per day. I do not want to continue this cycle, or have to use steroids.
I did have issues with dermographia, which began a little over a year ago, and the itching was so unbearable, I was losing days of sleep. I was prescribed 3 different antihistamines (asked my allergist if we could find out what the CAUSE of my skin issue was, and he refused.) I am no longer taking the antihistamines (which didn't always work anyway - as I had another bout with the dermographia 2 days ago.)
Could the suppression of the skin issue have manifested as asthma?
Which remedy would be best for this situation? I am a 22 year old female.
Thank you all so very much in advance!

Firstly, you should visit these sites to familiarize yourself with how homoeopathy works and what sort of information is needed to make prescriptions.
Secondly, it is important to understand that ideally you should have someone you can see in person to manage a situation like severe asthma. Homoeopathic treatment can provoke a number of healing crises that must be managed properly and in a timely manner. It should also be managed by someone with suitable experience in dealing with acute pathological crises. On a forum like this, many of us cannot be contacted when you need us due to the nature of this communication and time differences.
Thirdly, when presenting your case, you need to give a great deal of detailed information. This should be done initially WITHOUT the help of a pre-written questionare to get the most spontaneous and pure symptoms and expressions possible.
Start with the asthma, flesh out the description of what happens to you as fully as possible.
Go to the skin, again give as much information as possible.
Then move to all other complaints you have major or minor. Try to list them in order of suffering.
Homoeopathy also takes into account many characteristics that are not always considered parts of your disease in other therapies. Mental, Emotional, other kinds of physical characteristics.
Homoeopathy is not Astrology though, we are mainly interested in the areas of your life where there is pain, suffering, discomfort. Parts where you are stuck, where you cannot change or help yourself. Positive character traits are not helpful for choosing a remedy.
For each problem, at the very least consider:
What exactly happens, what does it feel like?
When does it happen, what triggers it, what time of the day or activity?
How does it happen, what is the sequence of events?
What makes it worse, what makes it better?
What happens at the same time, what symptoms tend to occur together or in very close proximity?
Single word answers or short sentences are not very useful. Be verbose, be descriptive, use images and stories and pictures or anything that will help us to understand what it is like to be you.

I have had some success in treating many Asthmatic patients with 2 remedies one of which I believe should help you virtually overnight. Please follow the instructions below precisely and report how you responded at night (3-9 AM) on the day after you commence this therapy.
Your remedy for Asthma is Blatta Orientalis 6c in the Wet dose taken twice daily for a week after which we can evaluate your progress.
Ars Alb 200c in the Dry Pellets to be kept as a standby and used on a SOS basis if your suffer from an acute attack when you will use the inhaler. Dose 6 pellets taken sublingually.
I shall indicate another remedy for your Dermographia if you still suffer from it today after we evaluate your response to your Asthmatic attacks.
The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:
Order the remedy in the Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull of the bottle or a large teaspoonful which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done at least 6 times before sipping a capful of the bottle as prescribed.

Thank you for the links - I will definitely take a good look at them.
I am still getting used to how wonderfully detailed finding a homeopathic remedy is. I notice I am holding back a lot of information because most orthodox doctors don't bother to ask the real important questions, nor do they care to know all the details.
I will write up a more detailed description tomorrow.
I am trying to find a reputable homeopath in my area, but am having trouble.

This forum is also a good place to find good guidance.
Kent was of the opinion that asthma was always a figwart symptom.
