What Triggers My Asthma?

An asthma episode is often started or "triggered" by something that irritates your lungs. These things are called asthma triggers.

There are many kinds of triggers, ranging from viruses (colds) to allergies to pollution. Different people have different triggers. The key to preventing or controlling an asthma episode is to learn your own personal triggers and try to avoid them.
