How to Avoid Asthma Triggers
Don't___________, as it can make your asthma worse for weeks.
Hello, I'm Dr. Robert Eitches, here for About.com. Firstly, don't smoke cigarettes and stay away from indoor places where people smoke. If the pollen counts are high, say during the spring or fall, that may not be the best day to go for an outdoor hike at a park or on a trail. Better to go to the beach, where the pollen counts are low and the air is cleaner. Don't catch a cold, it can make your asthma much worse for weeks. So, don't put yourself in a situation where there is a high likelihood of your catching a cold. And have a pocket or purse size hand sanitizer and use it after contact with infected people or potentially infected objects like door knobs or handrails.I'm Dr. Robert Eitches, for About.com.
