Health Tip: Exercising Despite Allergies and Asthma

Make sure you take your medication first
(HealthDay News) -- Exercise usually is a good idea, even for people with allergies or asthma, and as long as the doctor approves.
The American College of Allergy, Asthma, & Immunology offers this advice for people who exercise, despite having allergies or asthma:
Take any medication prescribed by your doctor before exercising. People who are allergic to dust may prefer outdoor exercise. People with seasonal allergies may want to exercise indoors during allergy season. Avoid exercising near chemicals or irritants in the air, such as places with heavy automobile traffic.
