In brief: Swimming
Avoid going outside if there are air quality alerts, such as ozone.
Remain well hydrated. Many persons with asthma enjoy swimming. If your asthma is under control, you can engage in a wide variety of activities; your physician may prescribe medication before physical exertion if you are prone to developing wheezing or an asthma attack with such activity. Report any cough or wheezing to your doc!
