I think i have a chest infection im finding it harder to breath and my chest feels tight and is very wheezing and crackling. Ive used the blue and brown inhaler but its not made a huge difference?

Hello , welcome to JustAnswer . I will be answering you shortly

Sorry to know that . How many times you use the brown one in a day?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
2 puffs twice a day

Make it 4 times a day for next 3 days and see if that helps . If it doesnt or you experience fever / green phlegm , you would need a course of antibiotic and steroids .
