Stay healthy during ‘Asthma Peak Week’

by The 100 Companies

According to the Allergy and Asthma Network, asthma attacks increase during the third week of September due to the “perfect storm” of the season.

During more relaxed summer months, many children and adults may reduce or stop taking medication that can trigger inflammation and make them more susceptible to attacks.

Additionally, anxiety about returning to school, spending more time in classrooms and exposure to viruses at work and school can contribute to the rise in episodes.

Consistently using prescribed medication and reducing exposure to common triggers such as outdoor allergens, smoking and vaping can reduce the occurrence of asthma attacks.
