    Mint Asthma Trigger.

    The other day my teacher told me she'd never heard of mint triggering asthma before. Has anybody else ever had the problem with mint triggering their asthma, or was it just me..? Thanks.

    Best air purifiers for asthma and animal dander, etc

    My asthma dr says it would help for me to put an air purifier in my bedroom. I do have allergies to dust and dog dander. The higher the CADR ( clean air delivery rate ) the better. Also a HEPA filter. They are not cheap. My bedroom is about 400 sq feet. Does anyone have any experience with these or knowledge you can share. If I am going to spend this kind of money, I want the best one for me. Thanks. Sheree

  • Do I Have Asthma?

    Hi, i'm jessica. I'm 16 years old and ever since about 2 years ago I've been having trouble breathing during exercise. Every time I exercise I begin to wheeze and it's embarrassing because everyone on my volleyball team can hear it and they think i'm dieing or something so they offer me a use of their inhalers, but of course I turn down their offer because it is unsanitary.
