Be sure to pack your medicine

THE National Asthma Council Australia is calling on families to ensure medicine routines are not disrupted this holiday season.

Chief executive Kristine Whorlow said it was important for parents to plan ahead to ensure puffers or other medicines were packed before heading off on holidays.

Ms Whorlow said the change of environment while away from home could also trigger asthma symptoms in children.

“As well as packing your child’s usual medicines, also think about what other problems you might encounter while travelling with allergies," she said.

"It might be a good idea to take your child’s hay fever tablets or nasal spray too.”
