Health Tip: Have Fun on Halloween, Despite Asthma
Keep your child safer

(HealthDay News) -- Halloween is a favorite holiday for children, but kids with asthma need to take special precautions.

The American Lung Association suggests how to keep your asthmatic child safer during Halloween:

  • Avoid fright fests -- Activities such as hayrides, corn mazes and visiting haunted houses can trigger an asthmatic episode. If your child participates in these activities, make sure the child carries quick-relief medication at all times.
  • Do not use masks -- Costumes and masks may contain latex, a common asthma trigger. Read labels on costumes and masks to see if they contain this ingredient.
  • Avoid makeup -- Costume makeup may have a strong odor that could trigger asthma. If possible, skip makeup or use unscented and hypoallergenic products.
  • Stay out of the leaves -- It is fun to jump in leaves, but they may contain molds and fungus, which are common asthma triggers.
