Holiday Asthma Triggers for Kids

Be Ready for Any Asthma Trigger

Don’t forget that your pediatrician’s office and your local pharmacy may have an irregular schedule over the holidays. Make sure you are ready, in case your child has asthma symptoms..

“If your child has asthma, have your medicine supply intact over the holidays when everything closes down,” says Honsinger. “If your child uses an inhaler or a nebulizer, make sure you have these on hand, so if asthma symptoms flare  up in the middle of Christmas, you have something at home to start treatment right away.”
