    Hello sir....its a good thing you don't have attacks frequently. Secondly,luckily you have found the triggers of your wheezing attacks , so best to minimize or totally avoid these triggers. 3rd you should always have your salbutamol inhaler with you.this is called a reliever inhaler and it's to relieve you when you have attacks. If your attacks become more frequent and less controlled with the salbutamol, then you will need inhaled Steroids . Remember, there's no cure asthma.
