Travelling with Asthma

Asthma is a common medical condition, with 1 out of 5 households having an affected family member. Asthma can affect you in different ways; whether it is through sporting activities or even day to day life an asthma attack can appear suddenly causing breathlessness, wheezing, tightness in the chest and/or pain.

If you have asthma symptoms 3 times or more in a week, your Doctor will prescribe you an inhaler. These come in two different colours; blue (reliever) and brown (preventer). Although the symptoms of asthma can appear suddenly in some circumstances, it is important to remember that it is possible to enjoy a well-deserved break if you simply prepare and follow our advice.
