Exercise induced: Exercise induced Bronchospasm is one possible cause. Please discuss the use of Albuterol before exercise and as needed during and after exercise. A spacer device may be used to increase delivery to the small airways. Avoid dust, smoke, pollen and animal dander. Please have an evaluation with your physician. Stay home, rest and monitor your temperature.
