Spring has finally sprung, and while that may be good news for those of us itching to get outside, it may mean added challenges for those suffering from asthma. If you have allergic asthma, use these tips to manage your asthma symptoms and prevent asthma attacks this spring.
Keep an Eye on Air Quality
If you plan on being outside at all, you’ll definitely want to make checking the forecast a priority. Air quality has a big effect on how well our lungs function, so you’ll want to avoid being outside, and especially exerting yourself, when the air quality is poor.
Take Precautions When Doing Yard Work
Pay attention to the pollen levels, and plan to work outside in the mornings or evenings when they’re typically at their lowest. You can also wear a particle mask to help lessen exposure to small particles. Keep in mind that fertilizer and freshly cut grass can sometimes trigger symptoms, so outsourcing those tasks if possible is a good idea.
Keep Prescriptions on Hand
If you know you’re at risk for attacks, make sure you have your rescue inhaler or other quick-relief medication with you while working or exercising outside. Keep up to date with your appointments, and if preventive medications are a part of your health plan, then make sure you’re taking them.
