Allergic reaction: You may have allergic triggers of your asthma. Please avoid common triggers including dust, mold, pollen and animal dander. Use fragrance free soap and lotion. Follow you asthma plan with your PCP or during a virtual Healthtap consultation. You may also upload a photo for an inbox consultation. Take an antihistamine daily for two weeks to gauge improvement. Watch for cough, shortness of breath.
