Cover your pillowcases, box spring and mattress with mite-proof covers to help keep dust mites at bay during the night.

Spend less time around pets.

Limit your pet’s access to the area where you sleep and sweep/vacuum more often to lessen pet dander triggers.

Cover your face.

Wear a scarf or face mask that protects your mouth and nose to help block cold outdoor air.

Practice cold/flu prevention.

Getting a cold or the flu can lead to an asthma flare up. Wash hands often with proper technique (using warm soap and water and rubbing vigorously 15-20 seconds), get a flu shot and avoid people that have a cold or the flu.
