Winter Is Coming
Tips for Asthma triggered by cold weather.
Why Does Cold Air Affect Asthma Symptoms?
How to Avoid Asthma Attacks in the Cold:
4. Get your flu vaccine early in the fall.
5. Vacuum and dust your home often to remove indoor allergens.
6. Wash your sheets and blankets every week in hot water to get rid of dust mites.
To prevent asthma attacks when you exercise outdoors in cold weather:
We always recommend the flu vaccine and this year the CDC and the AAP do not recommend the flu mist. Due to this, there may be a shortage in flu vaccine available. Please call us and make your appointment today, or if you are a current patient just walk in anytime during our office hours to receive your flu shot.
