Health Tip: Asthma and Air Pollution
(HealthDay News) -- Air pollution makes the air unhealthy -- a particularly serious problem for people with asthma.
The American Academy of Family Physicians says you should talk with your doctor about:
- Symptoms of exposure to air pollution, which could include chest pain and coughing.
- Long-term medication to manage asthma.
- Whether you are more sensitive to polluted air than the average person.
