Are viruses, cold air or wood smoke triggering you this winter?  

We know winter can be a difficult, tiring, and frustrating season for people with asthma. The change of weather at the beginning of winter is also a time where many people end up in hospital because of asthma flare-ups, especially children.  

We’ve put together some ‘Asthma Basics’ for you and for your child to follow to help stop your triggers in their tracks this winter. We’ve also put together some information to help you identify triggers in your life and explain them to your kids.   

Are you waiting to see a GP about your or your child’s asthma this winter and unsure what questions to ask? Have you seen a doctor with concerns about asthma and left feeling deflated? We can help.   

Our team of friendly Asthma Educators are available to talk one-on-one. We are trained to assist you in better understanding asthma in a way that’s both helpful and easy to understand.
