Question Asked:

"Hi, I have difficulty in breathing each time I inhale dust, run, carry heavy objects for long or inhale smoke. I once had pneumonia when I was much younger. Each time I have this breathing problem, I'd take Ventolin tablet as prescribed to me by a doctor because it's chest pain and the early stage of asthma. Nowadays, Ventolin doesn't help at all. please what should I do?"

    Hello, if a doctor has seen you before and started you on ventolin inhaler which was providing relief and now not so much. you need to go back to same doctor for continuity. you need a second type of inhaler, you'll know more about it when you see the doctor. do this soon please. avoid those triggers you mentioned.
