Controlling Asthma Triggers

  1. Asthma Attack Triggers

    Your child's asthma may be triggered by a number of things: pollen, molds, certain foods, strong odors, or even exercise.

  2. Avoiding Asthma Triggers

    From bed coverings to air purifiers, from pets to secondhand smoke, here are ideas to keep your child's asthma triggers under control.

  3. During an Asthma Attack

    Your child's breathing will become harder and may hurt. You may hear a wheezing or whistling sound, which is typical of asthma.

  4. Ozone and Your Child's Asthma

    Children with asthma may experience more severe symptoms than adults or experience symptoms at lower ozone concentrations. They are also more likely to experience an asthma attack when ozone levels are high.
