Health Tip: Asthma and Air Pollution

Asthma Attack Treatment

(HealthDay News) -- Air pollution makes the air unhealthy -- a particularly serious problem for people with asthma.

The American Academy of Family Physicians says you should talk with your doctor about:

  • Symptoms of exposure to air pollution, which could include chest pain and coughing.
  • Long-term medication to manage asthma.
  • Whether you are more sensitive to polluted air than the average person.
