Asthma affects approximately 25 million people across the nation.

In Hawaii, more than 150,000 people are affected by asthma, and about one-third are children.

Asthma cannot be cured … but it CAN be controlled by avoiding triggers and taking medication as directed by your/your child’s doctor.

Asthma symptoms and asthma attacks are often caused by allergens or irritants, known as “triggers.”

Other common asthma triggers include:

  • Mold
  • Perfume
  • Poor air quality
  • Pet dander
  • Dust
  • Vog

Learn what triggers your/your child’s asthma attacks and avoid these triggers whenever possible.
