Summertime Asthma Triggers
If you have asthma, you know that summertime can be bittersweet. Warm air and sunshine are often accompanied by extreme changes in the weather. These sudden changes can trigger asthma symptoms. This is especially true when moving from a hot, humid day outside into a cold building.
Here are a few ways to keep asthma from flaring up
- Stay cool. If you spend time outdoors, avoid the hottest part of the day.
- Keep hydrated. Drink plenty of fluids throughout the day to stay hydrated.
- Avoid smoke. Keep your distance from campfires and smoky barbecues.
- Shower. Rinsing off after coming indoors reduces allergens that you bring back into the home.
Keep these tips in mind for a healthier summer and remember to carry your rescue inhaler. You never know when you may have a problem so be prepared. Remember that inhalers don’t like heat. Try to avoid storing them in a hot car or glove box
