Health Tip: Weather Can Affect Asthma

-- Asthma symptoms can be exacerbated by a variety of triggers, including exercise. Attacks also may be brought on by certain types of weather.

Here, courtesy of the Nemours Foundation, is a list of different types of weather that have been linked to asthma:

  • Cold, dry winter air.
  • Windy weather that stirs up pollen and other irritants.
  • Hot and humid air.
  • Thunderstorms, possibly because of wind or changes in barometric pressure.
