EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) -
Because of the mild winter, experts say we're seeing a stronger allergy season. The high pollen count can make asthma attacks worse in kids.
There is a special camp called, Camp Notta Gonna Wheeze, where they teach kids how to decrease their asthma attacks with projects like making slime,which teaches kids about their asthma by getting hands on.
Thanks to the mild winter, kids with asthma might have worse symptoms this year.
"The pollen is definitely worse this year. More coughing and sneezing," said camp volunteer Riley Jamison.
Riley Jamison has asthma, and has gone to the camp since he was in third grade.
"I learned a lot about asthma and what it really is, because I wasn't sure either," said Jamison.
Jackie Richards, a registered respiratory therapist says the lessons kids learn this year will be especially helpful, because of the increased pollen count. She suggests that parent's whose kids have asthma should avoid the outdoors for long periods of time, and keep a close eye on symptoms like coughing, especially at night.
"If coughing is keeping them awake at night, then they may have more problems," said Richards.
She suggests kids check their peak flow more often than usual.
"They're peak flow can start dropping long before they show symptoms," said Richard.
Which can mean kids might have to take their medicine more often. Richards says medicine is something they focus on at camp as well.
"A lot of times, they'll just squirt them toward their mouths and they won't get their medicine in," said Richards.
Follow these tips, and hopefully you're child's symptoms will be under control, even with worse than usual pollen.
Asthma is one of the most common chronic diseases in children. It affects an estimated six million kids across the nation.
More tips on how to keep your children's asthma symptoms in check despite the larger than usual pollen count.
Keep a close eye on symptoms in your children. Look for coughing and wheezing, but also pay attention to any change in behavior.
"Sometimes children they won't express that they feel really bad, they'll just get really quiet," said Richards.
That may be a sign that their peak flow is getting weaker.
Richards also says to check children's peak flow more often than usual.
That may be a sign to use medicine.
Richards says with pollen worse this year kids might have stronger symptoms than usual. For example, she says if kids are coughing through the night, they're symptoms might be worse.
Also, Richards says children shouldn't be outside for too long, because symptoms might flare up.
"Try to avoid being outside for long periods of time. Maybe sort periods of time, and then when they come in make sure they're not showing any symptoms," said Richards.
She says when kids come back inside, check have them check their peak flow.
Richards says parents should monitor how kids take their medicine. Sometimes they don't do it effectively
