    Asthma problems not helped by steroid shot?

    My asthma has been getting worse over the last few months. well, both my mother and I get this horrific cough every single time the seasons change. I don't know what to call it. All I know is that its related to my asthma, and it mimics bronchitis, but its not bronchitis. when I'm dealing with it, I'm much more prone to having an asthma attack, too. I'm short of breath constantly, and when I cough it hurts deep in my lungs. In the past, a steroid shot and occasionally some antibiotics fix it. I've been to the doctor for it twice now and had both a steroid shot and antibiotics, and they helped for maybe two days. I'm back at square one. I don't know why it didn't help this time, but it really concerns me that it didn't. This has been going on for almost a month now, and I don't know what to do or what is even wrong at this point. I don't even know that my doctors can do anything else for it. If anyone could provide a little insight or advice, I would be so grateful.
    BTW, I've never smoked.
