Allergy Tip of the Day: Asthma and Sports
Pollen Forecast: Pollen numbers increase overall as the temps increase. If you are lucky to get a stray shower, it will reduce the numbers, but not a lot of relief in sight. New weeds are being seen, such as ragweed and sagebrush.
Did You Know?: Asthma and Sports
Some sports and activities can be better choices for kids with asthma. Golf, and wrestling are less likely to trigger asthma flare-ups. Swimming helps build lung strength. Sports like baseball, football, gymnastics, and shorter track and field events can be good choices too.
