HelloThis is a different expert.I am a double board certified clinical: hands on: doctor.To make sure, she needs pulmonary function testing.This is a set of measurements made blowing through a special tube into a machine.This will confirm asthma.And people can get over asthma by the way.The specialists who typically do testing are allergists, and pulmonologists.Please click a positive.Let me know if you have more questions.

She hasn't had anything done. Just listened to her chest and then gave me two prescriptions. She has been to the doctors quite a lot with coughing.
