Asthma triggers vary from person to person and can range from allergens and environmental irritants, to health conditions that cause asthma. Identifying your individual allergy triggers is crucial in helping prevent and treat your asthma. Common allergens include some foods, dust mites, indoor mould, pets, and pollen. Common irritants include smoke, household sprays, perfume, and paints. Other triggers may include exercise, colds and infections, certain types of weather, stress, and some medications.
