Asthma is a chronic condition that causes inflammation and narrowing of the airways making it difficult to breathe. But did you know there are several different types of Asthma?

There are several types of Asthma and different things that trigger an asthmatic reaction. The more you can hone in on your type of asthma, the better you can be treated.

Check out the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology for more details of each type of asthma.  That’s acaai.org.

Get Started With I.C.O.E. Bracelets

While asthma and allergies often go hand in hand, they are not interdependent. You may have asthma without allergies or allergies without asthma. Either way, you should wear a medical alert bracelet or an allergy bracelet that includes an asthma alert with your allergies. I.C.O.E. Bracelets would be happy to create your Asthma or Asthma & Allergy alert bracelet just for you. Each one comes with 1 or 2 emergency contact numbers and there’s room for an inhaler or EpiPen instructions.
