  • Check the weather at the destination. Extreme hot and cold can trigger asthma attacks. Check pollen and mold counts, too.
  • Try to find lodging with non-smoking & pet-free rooms.
  • Bring along allergy relief bedding.
  • Visit the child's doctor for a check-up before leaving.
  • If flying, pack an asthma plan and all medicines and devices in a carry-on bag. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) allows passengers to carry on medications and respiratory equipment like nebulizers.
  • Bring back-up prescriptions in case the medicine gets lost.
