Traveling despite Asthma and Allergies

Traveling can expose you to new triggers for allergies and asthma, but planning ahead can help you breathe a bit easier while you're away.

The American Academy of Allergy Asthma & Immunology offers these travel suggestions:
  •  Pack your asthma and allergy meds in carry-on bags, and keep them in their original containers.
  •  Continue to take your medications on schedule as directed by your doctor.
  •  Prepare for potential problems, such as food allergies.
  •  Keep contact information for your allergist and an emergency contact handy.
  •  If possible, find an allergist at your travel destination.
