Does your child have asthma, experience breathing problems or have a persistent cough?
Airborne Allergy Action raises awareness of the benefits of the airborne allergen avoidance (dust mites, mould, tree & grass pollen and pets) used alongside prescribed medication to help reduce symptoms of asthma and other allergic illness. This is relevant in homes, schools and other places that children spend extended periods of time.
Did you know?
Approximately 70% of asthmatics are allergic to dust mites (their faeces). Many are also allergic to dust, mould, tree pollen (particularly silver birch, hazel and alder), grass pollen and pets.
After infancy most childhood asthma is caused by colds and allergens*

By learning what your child’s allergic triggers are (by skin prick or blood test) and systematically avoiding them in your house and their school, your child’s asthma may improve significantly.
Disclaimer: Always take your prescribed medication as it is not possible to avoid all allergic triggers all the time.
