Health Tip: Triggering Asthma Attacks
These factors may bring on an attack

(HealthDay News) -- An asthma attack can be triggered by a host of factors, from things to which you're allergic to panic or fear.

The American Lung Association says asthma can be brought on by:

  • Respiratory infections such as the flu or common cold.
  • Foods to which you're allergic, commonly shellfish or peanuts.
  • Medications, such as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.
  • Allergens, such as smoke, dust mites, mold or animal dander.
  • Pollen, air pollution or significant changes in weather and temperature.
  • Stress, laughing, crying, yelling, or feeling afraid or angry.
  • Irritants from strong odors, such as from cleaning supplies, air fresheners or perfumes.
  • Exercise, such as from climbing stairs, playing sports or swimming.
