Asthma can be managed by using an inhaler which contains a steroid medicine. The medicine is administered into the lungs, and this can help to reduce the inflammation and widen the airways again. Inhalers can also contain a β2-agonist which can help to relax the muscles in bronchial walls.
More information on asthma medicines can be found in the breathing and asthma resource.
