Many: The most common triggers in the home are animal dander, dust mites, smoke (tobacco) polution, molds and assorted others. Ideally you can fous in on the particular trigger but this is often difficult to say the least. Removing carpeting ; rugs is a start as well as keeping cats and dogs out of your bedroom. Dust mites can be controlled in your bedroom by using special mattress covers. Air purifiers.

Agree with Dr Williams. Recommend seeing an allergist and asthma specialist to help figure out what your exact triggers are so you can focus in on what you need to do to help get your asthma under control
