Managing your asthma


Experts agree, that managing asthma is the key to minimising symptoms when you come into contact with your triggers.


To help prevent reactions:


Make sure that you have an up to date asthma plan in place. If not, visit your asthma nurse or doctor and get something written up.


Don’t forget to take your preventer medication – it will help to reduce any reactions when you’re triggered.


Make sure that you have regular reviews of your medication, and keep an eye on your triggers.
