Springtime Allergies and Asthma

Asthma and allergies often go hand in hand. Breathing in pollen can cause an asthma attack. These tips can help you manage asthma during the springtime allergy season:

  • Most pollen is released between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Keep outdoor activities to a minimum during this time.
  • Keep your windows at home and in the car closed. Use air conditioning when possible.
  • Keep bedroom windows closed during pollen season.
  • Take medications as prescribed by your physician. It is easier to prevent allergy symptoms than treat them.
Springtime allergies are usually caused by pollen from trees. A daily Pollen Count in Utah is reported by Intermountain Allergy & Asthma.
