Asthma affects 1 in 13 adults as well as millions of children every year. The CDC estimates that close to 6.2 percent of all physician visits were to treat and manage asthma.
If you, your child, or another family member suffers from asthma then make sure to visit AFC Urgent Care Watertown for fast and immediate asthma symptom treatment.
We recommend taking the following preventive actions to help lower your chances of triggering asthma:
- Routinely cleaning, dusting, and wiping down surfaces to reduce asthma triggers like dust and pollen.
- Washing bedding and similar linens at least once a week in hot water
- Getting any updated flu vaccines and antiviral medications as necessary
- Always carrying your inhaler on you at all times
Even with a strong action plan you may still come into contact with an asthma trigger. When this happens, make sure to visit AFC Watertown. We can help treatment and manage asthma with inhaler and medication refills, on-site symptom relief, and guidance on how to prevent future asthma attacks.
