Tips for Grown-ups
Kids whose asthma is under control can play sports and keep active.
- Exercise helps strengthen lungs, which makes asthma attacks less likely.
- Activities that include a warm-up, a cool-down, and short rest periods (like swimming, baseball, football, dancing) — so that kids can catch their breath — are especially good.
- Kids should carry their quick-relief medicine to use right before activities or during their play.
