Hi, based upon ur clinical history looks like ur having an chronic airway disease, i.e asthma,COPD.. Avoid dust, pollen, smoke, fragrances, cold air etc.., Kindly consult ur physician & undergo IgE testing -- to determine the allergens to which you have become sensitized. You can then take measures to minimize your exposure to those allergens.
