Symptoms of Asthma – Lung Health
Do you wheeze, feel tightness in your chest, and have trouble getting a full breath of air? You might be asthmatic. Northwest Hospital pulmonologist Dr. Helena Jones says as spring approaches, pollens emerge and so do allergens.
“There are many different kinds of asthma, but one of the most common types is caused by allergies,” Dr. Jones says. “These can be allergies to pollens, dust mites or mold and mildew. If you are allergic to dust, try using special hypoallergenic sheets and pillowcases and make sure to wash your bed linens frequently. And if pollens make your asthma worse, try to stay indoors on days when the pollen count is high.”
If you notice a flare-up, consult with your doctor immediately. Asthma can be managed with proper treatment and by preventing your exposure to triggers.
