I don't know if this constitutes as asthma or not, but read through it ALL before answering please.
Is there a condition where:
A person may have an inhaler, but doesn't use it daily?
Like they ONLY use it when their lungs are irritated slightly (secondhand smoke, cold weather, stress). And they would only need a puff or two. And they could go without an inhaler for weeks until their lungs get irritated again for another puff.
If this does constitute as asthma, what kind of inhaler would they use based on what I wrote above (only needing it in certain circumstances and not daily).
If it isn't asthma, what is the condition called? And what kind of inhaler would they be using?
