How To Properly Use Your Asthma Inhaler





Asthma Defined For those who don't have it, asthma can seem like a disease that should be able to be conquered. After all, it is just breathing. And for those diagnosed with it later in life, you may also not understand the potential severity of asthma. Perhaps you feel a little tightness in the chest when you strain yourself, or you cough a little too much, a little too often. 

That s a symptom of asthma that s not uncommon in someone just beginning an exercise regimen, for instance. It s also symptomatic of being out of shape and pushing yourself too hard. Not doing correct warm-ups before, cool downs after, or keeping properly hydrated... the list goes on. So, yu see, there is no need to get worked up over nothing if you begin to experience asthmatic symptoms.

Talk to your physician about medication that will stop these attacks, before you they get too scary and out-of-control.

This medication may be taken every day, or as needed when breathing becomes a hassle. However this medication is prescribe, follow your doctor s order and follow your dosing schedule exactly. 

To reduce your risk of having an asthma attack around animals, there are steps you can take. Common sense, again, trumps all else.
