If you use your rescue inhaler more than two times a week, see a doctor to have your medication adjusted. This can indicate that the inhaler you are using is not working for you. This also goes for refills. If you find yourself refilling your inhaler in excess of twice a year, then you need to change medications.
Replace your bed pillows often to avoid a build-up of irritating contaminants. Make use of 100% cotton fabrics for your linens. Regular washing and replacement, as well as the use of cotton, will prevent dust mites from harboring in your bedding. Dust mites are lurking everywhere, just waiting to trigger a nasty asthma attack, so be vigilant with your other bedding, as well. To keep your child healthy, make sure they are never around smoke. Secondhand smoke is a huge health risk and directly plays a role in why people develop asthma. Also, do not let your child around others who smoke.
