The asthma could attack anywhere from a few minutes to day.

Treatment for Asthma :

The medication prescribed consists of two types of medicines; control drugs and quick relief drugs. If you have got a severe asthma attack, you might even need immediate hospitalisation and be put on oxygen immediately.
