Month of May: Health Observance Topic
Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month
May Observance 2015
Seasons are changing from cold to warm during this month; that means allergies are on the way! In fact that is why this month is so conveniently known as Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) has declared May to be Asthma and Allergy Awareness month in order to educate people about these diseases during the peak season.
Asthma attacks/worsening symptoms can be triggered by allergies. Avoiding substances that one is allergic to can lower the risk of having an asthma attack. There are a number of things parents can do around the house to prevent asthma and allergies. For instance, dust mite prevention (not allowing smoking in the house, washing bedding in hot water once a week, vacuum twice a week, etc.) and mold and mildew prevention such as removing laundry from washing machine promptly, clean visible molds, washing shower curtains and tiles with mold killing solutions (bleach) and many other ways.
