      Reduce asthma attacks in summer!

      Summer is hot and humid. It’s great to enjoy the outdoors but at the same time if you are prone to asthma, it’s good to take some precautions as pollen and hay fever can trigger off an attack.

      Take asthma medications every day

      Do not reduce or skip your asthma medications during summer, this can backfire and impact you seriously during Fall.

      Keep your asthma action plan ready

      Work with your doctor and come up with an asthma action plan that lets you decide how you will handle things if the extreme weather worsens your asthma symptoms. Make sure you get an asthma check-up in summer to see where you stand.

      Exercise smart

      Exercise is good for everyone including asthmatics. Stay aware of air quality alerts and plan your outdoor exercises based on this. It’s best to exercise early in the morning. Do carry your inhaler with you during runs, workouts, and team practices.

      Shower once back from outdoors

      Once you return home, it’s a good idea to shower as this will bring down the exposure to allergen and other triggers. Leave your clothes with the laundry and brush your shoes to avoid any triggers that could have latched on.

      Avoid asthma triggers

      Each person’s asthma has a different trigger and has a different kind of response. Colds (viruses), pollen, outdoor air pollution, tobacco smoke, cold air, wood smoke, mold, dander from animals and so on can lead to an attack. Make sure you are familiar with your triggers.

      Stay prepared while traveling

      Summer is a great time for vacationing but to make the most of it, you must prepare well before you travel. Always carry your asthma medication with you. Carry your pillow as not all hotels and places are likely to have hypoallergenic pillows.
