The best thing to use is an inhaler, but if you don't have one, try drinking hot coffee or taking a hot shower. What ever you do, be as calm as you can in this situation, as stress or anxiety will only make the Asthma attack worse. Caffiene can sometimes aid bronchodilation as well as the heated humidity that you breathe in during a hot shower. If the symptoms are bad, don't wait. Go to the emergency room or doctors office right away.
