Managing Asthma In The Summer
The rising temperatures and increasing humidity levels do not augur well for people suffering from asthma. As the temperatures soar, the humidity levels also go up causing asthma symptoms to act up. If you have asthma, then these steps can help you manage your condition during the summers:
1. Understand your summer triggers: For one person pet dander can be a trigger while for another it can be pollen or mould. As triggers vary from one person to another, the asthma management plan has to be personal. During summers, air pollution, humidity, and heat are some common asthma triggers.
2. Avoid triggers: Though it may seem like a daunting task, it’s quite doable. Before you head outdoors, make sure to check the air quality. Check air pollution levels. There are many mobile apps that can give a real-time update of air quality. If you cannot avoid stepping out, then wear masks. On extremely hot and humid days, try to stay inside and avoid the heat.
3. Clean AC filter regularly: If there’s one thing that you will use throughout the summer, it is your air conditioner. It is best to clean your AC filters regularly. Dust particles trapped in AC filters can also trigger symptoms of asthma.
4. Use an air purifier at home: If you live in a city where temperatures are high and humidity levels are also high, use an air purifier at your home to filter airborne pollutants and improve air quality.
5. Have an asthma management plan: It would really benefit you if you have an asthma action plan in place. The very first thing to do is to identify the triggers and symptoms. Common symptoms of asthma include coughing, fast breathing and tightness in the chest. Make sure people around you --- your family and friends --- know of the symptoms and know what to do when they flare-up.
6. Be early: It is best to plan your outdoor activities in the early morning. Not only would you avoid the hot weather, but you will also find cleaner air comparatively. In the morning, the temperature is tolerable and air quality is better.
7. Stay hydrated: It is important to stay hydrated in the summer. By staying hydrated you can alleviate the symptoms of asthma.
