AAFA recently hosted a Twitter chat to share tips about how to prevent getting sick during cold and flu season when you have asthma – as well as what to do if you get sick.
Two of the most important things you can do to stay healthy are:
- Get a flu shot
- Wash your hands and keep your hands away from your face, so you are not infected.
If you do fall ill, stay on top of your asthma action plan and call your doctor. You can download an asthma action plan from Get Smart About Asthma. This educational website includes videos, toolkits and more to help everyone in your home with asthma stay healthy.
You can see all of the Twitter tips and learn more about staying healthy this cold and flu season with asthma here.
Get Smart About Asthma is brought to you in partnership with Teva Respiratory
