Four things that can make asthma worse are exercise, pollen, animals, and colds, and cold air.
When a person is having an asthma episode, I might see signs and symptoms such as coughing, wheezing, chest tightness, and shortness of breath.
If I think I might have asthma, I can get help from people like parent, school nurse and doctor (other trusted adult, teacher).
I can help my friend deal with his/her asthma by not teasing or including him in activities (reminding him to take medicine, helping him stay away from things that make his asthma worse).
