Got Asthma? Colds, Viruses, and the Flu Can Mean Extra Trouble

Fall is upon us, and so is cold and flu season. This year we’re also seeing enterovirus D-68 hospitalizing children with asthma across the country. That means it’s time to brush-up on our cold and flu avoidance skills. Remember, colds are the #1 reason for asthma attacks which can send you to the hospital, just like flu-related complications.

Step 1 – Avoid cold & flu viruses. Wash your hands often with soap and water or an alcohol-based hand rub. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth. Avoid close contact with sick people. Get plenty of sleep and exercise, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat healthy food.

Step 2 – Be prepared. Update your asthma action plan. Keep a close eye out for severe respiratory symptoms, especially wheezing and difficulty breathing. Know when to seek immediate medical care.

Step 3 – Get vaccinated for the flu. The flu vaccine is recommended for everyone 6 months of age or older, especially those with asthma. It takes up to two weeks for the vaccine to be effective against the flu, so get vaccinated as soon as possible.  Options are now available for those with an egg allergy.
