Allergy prevention

An ounce of Allergy prevention

The best way to deal with allergies is to avoid exposure to the substances that trigger outbreaks. Keeping your house clean may help prevent some reactions; special vacuum cleaners with dust-trapping filters may be beneficial.

Likewise, to avoid asthma attacks, avoid the allergens or activities that trigger the attacks. If your asthma attacks stem from exercise, talk to your doctor about administering a preventive dose of asthma medication before physical activity.

Allergy preventionCALL FOR HELP

If you suspect you have allergies, contact your doctor for advice on how to manage your condition. Allergy medication or shots may be beneficial in minimizing symptoms. Contact your doctor if you experience difficulty breathing, or if the symptoms don't clear up within one week.

Asthma should always be treated and monitored by a physician, preferably one with experience treating asthmatics. It's often hard to know when to call for help, but if you're in doubt, err on the side of caution and call your doctor or 9-1-1. As a rule, seek medical help if you must fight for breath and cannot talk, if you lean forward to get air, or if your condition does not improve within ten minutes of taking medication. Asthma is a life-threatening condition, and every attack should be treated with respect.
