With high levels of pollution across much of England and Wales, Boots UK pharmacists can offer tips and advice on managing your asthma.
If your asthma is made worse due to the high levels of pollution, Boots UK pharmacists can provide free tailored advice to help you understand the medication you use to treat your condition and give you tips on inhaler technique, so that you can get the full benefit from your inhaler.
Boots UK pharmacists have received bespoke training to help you identify ways to better manage your asthma and your overall health and wellbeing. In-store, pharmacists can check if your asthma is well managed through an Asthma Control Test. In addition, they can provide advice on how to best control asthma symptoms and the triggers that exacerbate the condition.
Small but simple steps may help you better manage your asthma symptoms;
- Improving your inhaler technique helps ensure that you get the best out of your inhaler
- Always keep your reliever inhaler with you and take your preventative inhaler as prescribed
- If you notice that your breathing is affected, try to avoid any unnecessary strenuous outdoor activity
