Thunderstorm Asthma

Storm forming over a city

Did you know that thunderstorm asthma can affect people who have never had asthma?

Thunderstorm asthma affects some people with allergic rhinitis (hay fever) as well as those with asthma. To lower your thunderstorm asthma risk, make sure that your allergic rhinitis symptoms are well controlled—chat to your doctor about the best ways to manage your allergic condition. Thunderstorms are common in spring and summer, so if you have allergic rhinitis try to stay inside with windows and doors closed on high pollen days, especially during a thunderstorm.

If you live in south-eastern Australia you can check the pollen count in your area. For people in Adelaide, Asthma Australia has Adelaide pollen information. ASCIA has some helpful thunderstorm asthma information.
