Asthma

Asthma is a long term illness that makes the airways to your lungs narrow, swollen, or blocked.  It is important to do everything you can to keep your asthma under control.

Uncontrolled asthma:

  • Makes it hard for you to breathe
  • Keeps your from playing sports or doing physical activities
  • Can cause you to miss work or school

You can control asthma if you:

  • Know your triggers and how to avoid them.
  • Take your daily medicine as directed by your doctor.
  • Use your rescue inhaler as directed by your doctor.
