Poor air quality can be especially harmful to children with asthma or other chronic sino-pulmonary conditions.
Asthma flare-ups occur when the airways tighten in reaction to triggers such as pollen, dust, smoke or exercise.
It is unclear if asthma poses an increased risk for COVID-19. However, because COVID-19 is a respiratory virus it’s important to take precautions.
This February 29, we will celebrate Rare Disease Day, with a mission of raising awareness about rare diseases and their treatment.
With the school year in full swing and the winter season up ahead, it’s more important than ever to know how to stay on top of your child’s asthma care and management.
