Difficult to control asthma

14) Antifungal medicines

Sometimes having asthma can make you more susceptible to an infection which is not caused by a bacteria or virus but by a fungal infection. This is treated using anti fungal medication.

Examples of anti fungal medicines include:

  • Itraconazole (Sporanox┬«).

What do they do?

  • Some asthma patients have lung infections which can make their asthma symptoms worse and more difficult to control.
  • These medicines stop the fungus from growing and allow the body a greater chance to fight the infection.
