Spring is in the air!!

Everywhere gardens are looking good, parklands are green, blossom is coming out on fruit trees and the world is a colourful, sweet smelling place, full of butterflies, bees and — pollen.

If you suffer from seasonal asthma now is the time to check that your inhalers and preventers are not out of date. Pollens can cause a lot of misery for people who suffer from asthma.

Check out our topic Asthma - managing your asthma.

Pollens can also be bad for people who get hay fever, so, check with mum, dad or whoever looks after you that there are anti histamine tablets , nasal sprays or eye drops in the medicine cupboard or fridge.
