AKA Viral-induced Asthma.

One of my online friends who used to be a nurse, thought my symptoms could be viral-sensitive asthma.  I still have an occasional cough, I still have my sinuses producing mucus that runs down the back of my throat (hence the cough...it's just not as runny, mostly thick and not as much), I just don't have the wheezing.  I'm able to take a deep breath just fine.

From what I've read, there's not much they can do about it except prescribe steroids (bronchial dialators) and wait for it to get better, which can be up to 8 weeks.

It took me over three months to get rid of this the last time to where I could see clients again.  I feel somewhat-well enough now, that I could probably see clients, but I'm going to give it another week.

Any thoughts, anyone about using a nasal steroid?  Would there be long-term repercussions?

Here's what we use:  http://www.healthy-sunshine.com/nspshopping/shopexd.asp?ID=93  As soon as we feel a little something congestive coming on, we start taking ALJ.  If it doesn't go away, and only gets worse, we bring out the drugs:  http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&q=children%27s+cough+syrup+herbal&gs_upl=4289l11981l0l12194l29l15l0l0l0l0l0l0ll0l0&bav=on.2,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&biw=1346&bih=595&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=3989681571894759277&sa=X&ei=KNWtTsDaDM3LtgewkZmyDg&ved=0CHkQ8wIwBQ  Expec is herbal-based, but it has guaifenesin (decongestant) too.  I have mild asthma (enlarged lungs, susceptible to bacterial infections--maybe viral too), but have never had an asthma attack.  I just have to try my best to not get congested in the first place, or it goes straight to my lungs.
