Develop a plan: Successful asthma control can be achieved when you find a doc you can work with, learn the treatments & monitoring devices & develop a plan. This plan would include a way to tell if your control is getting better or worse (peak flow meter,symptom chart).It would include a plan for daily meds and when to use episodic rescue meds.an understanding of when to call or go in.

What is good to help control asthma?

Reduce triggers: Triggers are things that set asthma off. If your asthma is set off by smoke, then avoid environments where you might be exposed. If you're allergic to pets, avoid those. If dust mites are a problem, mattress covers help. For best results, an allergist can help you find out exactly what your triggers are. Medicines that reduce inflammation and open the airways help control remaining symptoms.
