Benefits news: April is Allergies and Asthma Month

Apr 1, 2016

You can help prevent allergy and asthma flare-ups by knowing what triggers them. 

Triggers are the allergens and irritants that make your allergies or asthma feel worse. Each person has a unique set of triggers. You can often find your triggers by paying attention to when your symptoms begin, like after you've mowed the lawn.

When you can't avoid your triggers, you may need to take allergy medication. If you have the type of asthma that is due to allergies, called allergic asthma, then avoiding allergy triggers can help prevent asthma attacks.

Please visit Managing Triggers for more information and a list of common triggers.
