Issues to discuss with your doctor

(HealthDay News) -- Air pollution makes the air unhealthy -- a particularly serious problem for people with asthma.

- Symptoms of exposure to air pollution, which could include chest pain and coughing.
- Long-term medication to manage asthma.
- Whether you are more sensitive to polluted air than the average person.
