Hereof, can I use an inhaler for a cough?
Asthma inhalers soothe the airways and suppress the need to cough. They can allow you the peace to recover. If an inhaler such as Ventolin doesn’t help, and the cough worsens, it’s important to see a doctor again in case there’s an underlying infection or other problem.

burning or bleeding of your nose;
