Hello everyone,

I am interested in hearing about what triggers your asthma? Is it several things?  And what do you do to prevent it?

Good day to you all,

What are your asthma triggers?

One of the most annoying things I react to is house dust mites.. they're everywhere :( At home I have had to invest in really good allergy friendly duvets and mattress. I also bought a dehumidifier. So at the moment I am comfortable when I sleep at least. But any advice on how to limit house dust mites are welcomed!

If you have carpet in your house, I suggest you get rid of them. I used to have carpet, but vacuumed a lot and thought that would be enough, but after we moved to a new home without carpet I can tell that I am feeling way better! 

Personally I react to exercise. So I have learnt to take it slow and never to go "all in" right away. Which can be really annoying because I am very competitive. But it goes well with the fact that I have developed ankylosing spondylitis as well, so training hard is difficult anyway. I still exercise but take it slowly.

Hi, personally my asthma triggers are all perfume and fragranced products, cigarette smoke, and feeling distressed or angry, in that order. It is interesting to see that although we all suffer the same condition, we don't all have the same triggers.

Heat and cold are really bad triggers for me, also, strong emotions. If I get wound up I can get very wheezy indeed but the cold really does me in. I suffer a lot in the winter. 

We used to have a carpet but since getting rid of it I am so much better. So I really would advise people to go for laminate or cushion flooring it has helped me so much .

I have asthma, normal things that trigger an attack are cold, smoke, and exercise but unusually also sulphites in white wine .
